The “Be Golden” award is a new faculty and staff recognition program at the high school.

This award is given weekly by a faculty/staff member to another faculty/staff member. Whoever receives the trophy on Friday is responsible for awarding it to someone else the following week. The only criteria are to give it to someone who has done something to make the school a better place.

“With the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiative in our school, we want to not only recognize students for being golden but staff members as well,” said Shannon Davis, the award program coordinator. “This is a way to personally thank people we work with every day, but don’t always have the chance to show them how much they are appreciated.”

Last week the award went to Mrs. Faith Everhart

She chose to give the award to Mr. Tommy Coleman

Mrs. Everhart’s Quote:

“This week’s Golden Eagle Recipient always has a smile on his face, is one of the most up-beat teachers in the building and if you are looking for someone to always help and give you hand, he is your man. If you are a student that needs help or just someone to listen, he will be there for you.  He enjoys his job and once told me that he has the best job in the world, and this is so evident when you see how much he truly enjoys teaching and helping his students.  He is a great coworker, setting an example for all with his positive attitude and infectious smile making you want to always be your best and be happy.  He makes me laugh on a regular basis and is always willing to help me when ever and where ever needed. Therefore, this week’s “Be Golden” Award goes to Tommy Coleman.”

The Eagle Eye interviewed Mr. Coleman about being this week’s award winner:

Eagle Eye: What encouraged you to become a teacher?

Tommy Coleman: “To make a difference in the lives of as many students as I can, so I became a PE teacher.”

EE: What do you enjoy most about being a teacher?

TC: “I really enjoy working with my co-workers and teaching sports or activities to the students.”

EE: Is this your dream job? If not, what is?

TC: “No, my dream job would be throwing batting practice for the best team in Major League Baseball, the Atlanta Braves!”
