Seniors at Dawson County High School were recognized during Teacher Appreciation Week for their commitment to future careers as educators. The school hosted a Georgia Future Educator Signing Day, a state-wide initiative sanctioned and recognized by the Georgia Department of Education, to celebrate the 11 students planning to become teachers. They signed certificates in similar fashion to scholarship signings on May 8. “We’re really proud of you guys because you have such a valuable career ahead of you and you’re going to make your impact on everybody,” said Work-Based Learning Coordinator Dianne Mayfield at the signing. “Don’t ever forget what an awesome responsibility you’ll have in front of you because you’re dealing with people’s lives and you – each and every one of you – will touch lives as you go forward with your future educator degrees.”
