The Chester County Board of Education recognized Amy Eads and Heather Griffin for their strong advocacy for the school district. They were selected among district staff.
“I wanted to make sure at this public forum that everybody understands, the community as well as our staff, what strong advocacy looks like for our children,” said Chester County Director of Schools Troy Kilzer II.
Angelia Haltom, Chester County High School Assistant Principal, spoke about their work for CC Schools.
“Over and over Mrs. Eads is available to meet the most basic needs for our students. At a moment’s notice, she will arrive with clothing, shoes and other items to meet our students most basic needs… She truly advocates for our students wants and needs. Her work to encourage students’ attendance is also critical in last year’s reduction in absenteeism.”
“Mrs. Griffin is relentless in her advocacy of programs for both students and staff. While providing for the most basic needs such as food for our students and families at our food bank. She also tends to academic opportunities and stakeholder partnerships that reach students at multiple levels.
When updating about COVID, Kilzer said Chester County Schools “have yet to have a student quarantine situation that has led to an active case based on another student. Students aren’t making other students sick in our schools.”
