Turner Public Schools alternative services coordinator, Carol Cox, has been chosen to receive the Crystal Apple Award.
The award is presented to four teachers in the Kansas City area each year by WDAF-TV.
On April 17, the fourth award for the 2012‐2013 school year was presented to Carol Cox of the Turner School District in Kansas City, Kan. Cox is the alternative services coordinator for the Turner district.
Among her varied assignments, she provides educational programming for students that are homebound. She was nominated for the Crystal Apple award by Tia Gray whose daughter, Haley, was unable to attend school due to an invasive form of cancer. Cox went to Haley’s home to deliver educational services to her during her extensive treatment regimen.
Haley died on Nov. 24, 2012. Gray showed her appreciation for the sensitive and caring manner that Cox presented in her work with Haley by submitting the nomination for the Crystal Apple Award.
Craig Shove is the communications coordinator with the Turner Public Schools.
