Spotlight on Tiger P.R.I.D.E: Jamie Price

“She’s wonderful!” Dr. McCombs’, principal of Jefferson Middle High School, replied when asked about the new face in the front office. Jamie Price, moved with her husband and two children from Central Florida a year ago as her husband took a job with Duke Energy. Their two children both attend Jefferson Middle High School. Although this is Jamie’s first experience as school secretary, she has worked in the capacity of a secretary for a real-estate broker and small business.  “I am so thankful for this amazing opportunity” said Mrs. Price. “The best part about my job is the wonderful people I work with. They are so helpful and friendly and have made me feel welcomed.” Mrs. Price also understands how important it is to be friendly and helpful to the public and the employees when they come into the school. She understands that a school secretary is usually the first face most of the public meets when they come into the office, and it is her responsibility to meet and interact with them tactfully and show courtesy.  She also understands that the public and employees depend on her for various information throughout the day, so it is equally important to her to be punctual, present, and informed at all times. Mrs. Price admits that the most challenging part of her job is learning new names and faces, but she is committed to greet all people with a smile and already shines professionally with Tiger P.R.I.D.E!  Welcome aboard Jamie Price! Jefferson Middle High and Jefferson County Schools are happy to welcome you and your family into our district!

Spotlight on Tiger P.R.I.D.E: Carol Revell

Superintendent Al Cooksey challenged all Jefferson County employees to make a commitment to strive for Tiger P.R.I.D.E (Personal Responsibility in Developing Excellence) as we unite together to move the district forward to a higher standard of excellence. Mr. Key, Principal of Jefferson Elementary School, recognized quickly that fifth grade teacher, Carol Revell, exhibited qualities of excellence in the rapport with her students and classroom instruction.  “She is well deserving because we have asked a lot from our teachers this year, and she has complied even with small requests”, explained Mr. Key. Mrs. Revell, a 35-year veteran of the Jefferson Elementary School, is one year away from retirement, yet still strives to stay  abreast of new educational  technology and provides her students with a quality education.  When asked how she felt that Mr. Key was quick to name her for showing Tiger P.R.I.D.E, Mrs. Revell responded, “It’s exciting and makes me want to work harder!”  Mrs. Revell’s bulletin board sums up the result of what a positive attitude and drive for personal excellence achieves… Success!

Each week the Jefferson County School District will continue to shine the spotlight on an employee who goes above and beyond to enrich the lives of our students and improve our schools by his/her dedication and commitment to Tiger P.R.I.D.E. Mrs. Revell has certainly set the bar high!
