Belinda Anderson, Principal of Chester County Junior High School, has recently been nominated as LifeChanger of the Year.
“LifeChanger of the Year is an annual program sponsored by National Life Group that recognizes and rewards K-12 educators and school employees across the country.”
Anderson was nominated by Leah Shull, assistant professor of Education at Freed-Hardeman University.
“I’m completely and totally humbled,” Anderson said. “It’s very sweet and unexpected. I love my people and children here so much.”
Winners will be chosen by a national selection committee comprised of past LifeChangers and higher education professionals.
If she wins, she will be surprised at the CCJHS during early 2020 and receive money for the school.

Some of the comments made so far about her are:
“Dr. Anderson really is a life changer. As a student at her school, she pushes us to work harder. But because we are pushed, we have really come a long way,” said CCJHS student Amy Harris.
“Dr. Anderson has been an extreme blessing to our school,” said sixth grade English teacher Tanya Harwell. “Her positive attitude has encouraged us all to push ourselves and our students beyond what we thought was possible. She encourages teachers, staff and students to exhibit positive mindsets that mimic hers.”
