Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools Ralph Yoder, announced that Elizabeth Bennett was recently recognized as the recipient of the “Make Their Day Better” award for the month of August. This monthly award was instituted by Superintendent Yoder in 2013 to recognize individuals that make a difference in the day of fellow staff members, students and/or parents.

Mrs. Bennett has been working for the Calhoun County School Board for eight years. Currently, she is employed at Blountstown High School as a Physical Education teacher.

In their nomination, one of Mrs. Bennett’s colleagues wrote the following:

Elizabeth Bennett does make a difference each and every day. She practices what she preaches, works hard, and is a positive role model for everyone. Even when she has lasted through a difficult day, she is still there willing to assist or help others. She continuously encourages/motivates her reading students, students who sign up to take the ACT, members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, her colleagues, etc. to stand and to do their best. Elizabeth does not simply tell others to do their best; she does her best in everything she attempts. It is an honor to work with her and to have her as a friend.

Congratulations to Mrs. Bennett as she works daily to make other’s days better.
