WCMS special education teacher’s assistant Charlotte Mullican has been named Warren County School’s Classified Employee of the Month, while WCMS science teacher Lynette McKinley and Centertown teacher Meghan Pegram have been named Certified Employees of the Month.

Mullican and McKinley were nominated by special education teacher Mary Payne.

“Mrs. McKinley welcomes my special kiddos in her science class and it is amazing how my students come out of her class excited about science,” said Payne. “Mrs. McKinley performs hands-on activities for her classes and makes learning so much easier for all students.”

Payne also bragged on Mullican, her assistant.

“Mrs. Mullican goes above and beyond her duties and is wonderful with our special kiddos,” said Payne while hugging Mullican. “My class runs smoothly because we work so well together. She is my right-hand sister in my classroom and it’s like we read each other’s mind and I’m so privileged to have her.”

Director of Schools Bobby Cox read written praise submitted by parent Kelly Casey about Pegram. 

“I nominate this teacher because she has always gone above and beyond what was expected of her. She has a special name for her class and each year will get them a shirt with all of their names on it. If a parent, needs to get in touch with her, she is very easy to reach and is right back in touch with them ASAP,” wrote Casey.

Casey also credited Pegram for being so understanding, explaining how Pegram handled her daughter’s illness in the fall.

“My little girl is in her class this year and she absolutely loves going to school every day just because she gets to spend it with her,” wrote Pegram. “My little girl was also very sick around Halloween and missed about a week of school and Mrs. Meghan was the first to message me and check on her. She pushes her students to do their very best. She is the ideal teacher I would want my kids to have every year.”

The awards were given for March.
