Congratulations to Elizabeth Elger !!

Dr. Robert Barron presented The Extra Mile Award to Elizabeth Elger, PE Teacher at Level Grove Elementary School. Dr. Darlene Hudson made the nomination and in her nomination states:

Recently, Level Grove participated in the American Heart Association Jump Rope for Heart, led by Coach Elizabeth Elger.  Honestly, when she set our goal for $3500, I did not believe it would be attainable, but anyone who knows Elizabeth knows she is one of the most enthusiastically positive people with big ideas for her students! She will do what it takes to promote generosity and get everyone actively involved! Before long, Level Grove met then exceeded goals day by day to raise almost double the amount (over $6000). Next week, top contributors will get to throw pies in Coach Elger’s face and dye her hair green in a school wide assembly celebrating this awesome accomplishment. Level Grove is so happy to have Coach Elger and looks forward to having her lead many more initiatives.

Ms. Elger received a framed certificate of recognition and a gift certificate to Zaxbys.

Ms. Elger shared that the actual amount raised by Level Grove Elementary School’s Jump Rope for Heart was $7,196.22.


Congratulations to Gail Gordon !!


Pat Taylor presented the Clarkesville Rotary Club Service Above Self Award to Gail Gordon, Administrative Assistant to Curriculum.  Rhonda Andrews made the nomination and in her nomination states:

During our recent AdvancED Accreditation visit Gail was instrumental in making sure the Engagement Review Team had everything they could possibly need. She organized the catering for meals each day, worked with Glen-Ella  Inn and Restaurant, delivered meals to the Inn and made several trips to Glen-Ella to take care of the needs of the team.  Her willingness to do anything that was asked of her was critical to the success of the visit. She even drove to Glen-Ella the morning of the last visit to pick up a computer charger that one of the team members left in their hotel room and got a copy of a recipe that one team member requested.   We could not have managed to do everything that had to be done without Gail's assistance.  Even the Lead Evaluator recognized and commented on her commitment to excellence. We are so grateful for her help and she certainly deserves this Service Above Self Award.  

Ms. Gordon received a framed certificate of recognition from the Clarkesville Rotary Club and a gift certificate to Midtown Grill.
