Extra Mile/Service Above Self Awards

The Habersham County School System is very fortunate to have such hard working and dedicated employees. Several years ago the system established the Extra Mile Award to recognize those employees who have gone above and beyond their job responsibilities. Over the years, we have only been able to recognize a very small percentage of those individuals, and as our system continues to grow it will become even harder to recognize all the deserving individuals.

Thanks to the Sunrise Rotary Club we now have the opportunity to offer a new award called Service Above Self. This award will also be given to an individual who goes above and beyond their job responsibilities. Since we now have two awards, we will recognize one certified employee and one classified employee each month. Please use the Extra Mile form to nominate a certified employee and the Service Above Self form to nominate a classified employee. Hopefully, this will allow us to recognize the hard work of more of our employees. Please remember that we are trying to honor the employee that goes above and beyond their job duties.

Nominate someone for the Extra Mile or Service Above Self Award

Every person employed in the Habersham County School System works very hard to make sure that the students’ needs are met and that we have a safe work place for our employees. These awards are intended to recognize those individuals who have “gone the extra mile” or put "service above self" in a specific situation in their building and who deserve an extra pat on the back for their outstanding performance of duties. Criteria for this recognition include: (1) Motivation to perform duties which is above that which is expected. (2) Performing additional tasks which are not anticipated for the job to make the educational process better and more efficient for students.
