Sylacauga City Schools is noted for its long history of dedicated teachers who not only taught, but also inspired their students to achieve great things. To continue this legacy of teaching and learning, a group of retired teachers, support staff, and administrators came together to endow a college scholarship through the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation for a future teacher.
The 2019 recipient is Miss Maggie Green, the daughter of Jason and Julie Green. She plans to attend The University of Alabama and major in English with an additional certification in Business Education. Maggie was very active during her four years at Sylacauga High School. While taking AP/Advanced classes in all four-core curricula, she was involved in print and broadcast journalism and a member of several clubs and honor societies—Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), Junior Scholastic Society, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta. Maggie was involved with the Sister for Sister Underclassmen Mentoring program as a junior and senior and was a cheerleader all four years.
Maggie stated, “I feel the pursuit of a career in education should always begin with a passion for helping others. I have been inspired by many teachers, coaches, and educators within my family. My goal as a future teacher is to support students with academics and help develop their passions through my involvement with clubs and extracurricular activities.” The teaching profession is a very rewarding one met with challenges, opportunities, and successes; and this future teacher will embrace it all with inspiration and a deep understanding of the impact teachers make in shaping the lives of their students.
Congratulations to Maggie Green!
