Mayor to Honor Smyrna Teachers, Students

Smyrna Mayor Max Bacon will be presenting the Mayor's Education Award to a group of local teachers, students and volunteers on Dec. 3.

City of Smyrna Mayor Max Bacon will honor a group of local teachers, students and volunters with the Mayor’s Education Award on Monday, Dec. 3, at the City Hall. The event will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony at 6:30.

Awards will be presented in the categories of student, staff and volunteer for the semester from each of the 12 Smyrna area schools with the addition of International Academy of Smyrna, a public charter school. Recipients are recognized for their academic achievement, dedication and volunteer service.

Bacon created the Mayor's Education Award in late 2005 to acknowledge the exceptional academic achievement of Smyrna students, and contributions from staff and volunteers.

“I am excited about recognizing our students for their academic accomplishments,” Bacon said. “Not only is it the kids, but the parents, volunteers and teachers constant support of our schools that make them the best places to be.”

The award recipients were selected by principals from the 12 Smyrna area schools.

They've been doing this for years now. It's great to have a Mayor who is willing to edify good efforts to support Smyrna's educational advantages! With cities like Dunwoody seeking to join Marietta in independence from county control, Max Bacon and his Council are keeping us hopeful that schools will become a major asset Smyrna. Thanks Mayor Bacon!

A belated Thanksgiving THANKS to Roxanne Lopez for all that she does for Argyle Elementary. (Right side in above photo.) She's tireless in her commitment to education. I've rarely gone to a school board or local after school meeting where she is not in attendance with a great smile and loving demeanor. Ms. Lopez - You Rock! Congrats and blessings on being one of CCSD's Teachers of the Year!

I think this is a wonderful act. I also would like to see you each year honor a former teacher and recognize their contribution. I attended 1-8th grade at the old Smyrna Ele and we had some very deserving teachers who were totally committed to their profession. Mrs. Mitchell, Toombs, Feely, just to name a few were loving, caring teachers and worthy of recognition.
