Teachers are some of the hardest working and underrepresented people in our community. It’s about time we recognize them for everything they do for our kids and community. We are happy to partner with Union County Public Schools (UCPS) for its Influencers Program!
The UCPS Influencers Employee Recognition Program began back in December 2019 and was interrupted by COVID-19 in March 2020. The program returned in 2022 with nominations from across the community.
Every month, staff members, parents, and students nominate UCPS employees to receive an award of recognition for the positive work they do in our schools.
In November, we honored Ms. Lana Funderburk the media coordinator at Piedmont Middle School, as well as the receptionist at Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle, Beatrice Salas. Both have shown undeniable dedication and positivity and we are so proud of the work they do for our kids. They were recognized at the Board of Education meeting so the entire county could be there to celebrate their accomplishments.
So what was our role in all of this? To show our support, we partnered with UCPS to provide lunch or breakfast for the instructional winner. In November, we provided breakfast for Ms. Lana Funderburk and the entire school staff at Piedmont Middle School.
Our small sign of appreciation for these incredible people is nothing compared to the work they do. It is our honor to recognize teachers and educational staff everywhere. You all deserve more recognition for the dedication and patience you bring with you. Thank you from everyone at Honda of Indian Trail!
