Employees of month
The Kansas City, Kan., Board of Education recently named Carl Scammahorn and Kevin Day as employees of the month for September.
Scammahorn is a carpenter at the school district. Day is an International Baccalaureate English teacher at Sumner Academy.
The nomination letter for Scammahorn:
“Professional, personable, dedicated and hard-working are just a few of the ways to describe Carl Scammahorn, carpenter at the Kansas City, Kan., Public Schools. He models excellence through his job, his actions and his interactions with staff and the community. Carl is always willing to ‘go all in’ to ensure that he completes a job to the best of his ability---not because he wants recognition for his quality. He does it because he wants the district to shine.
“Carl has been the primary person responsible for hanging the Reasons to Believe banners at the Central Office and Training Center, located at 2010 North 59th St. He takes great pride to ensure that they are displayed properly, and always checks in to see if there is a map of which banners should be hung where. Carl also oversees hanging banners on many of the schools around the district as well. Carl exemplifies excellence in every way through his work and his actions. I am proud that he works for the Kansas City, Kan., Public Schools” – Tammy Dodderidge, communications manager, Kansas City, Kan., Public Schools
The nomination letter for Day:
“Last school year was my first year teaching at Sumner Academy of Arts and Science and that is when I met Mr. Kevin Day, IB English Teacher. One of my neighbors referred to him as a ‘great teacher’ and as the year unfolded I understood what they meant. Students would tell me, ‘Mr. Day is really tough Mr. Oland, but he is a really good teacher and is really preparing me for college’. Since it was my first year as an IB teacher, I appreciated that he was so patient to explain things to me. Additionally, he does so much more to help support IB.
“I have also noticed that every activity that requires staff members to volunteer for fund raising, staff-student ball games or student mentoring, he is right there, one of the first to volunteer. He is a high quality teacher that is very dedicated and I believe he need to be recognized for his excellence, dedication, and hard work.” – David Oland, IB teacher at Sumner Academy of Arts and Science
