ver the several years in which I have had the pleasure to work with Mrs. Pearson, I have had the opportunity to observe her dedication and commitment as a servant leader. She goes above and beyond to assist her colleagues, often behind the scenes, to support the teaching and learning vision of the school. Throughout her career as a leader, Mrs. Pearson has helped facilitate the WHEELS program, Freshman Academy events, Golden Apple recognition ceremonies, and countless other school initiatives. She does so because she believes in Lowndes.
On a personal note, Mrs. Pearson is an invaluable asset to our administrative team. Her willingness to work late, come in early, and work "until the job is done right" is a true reflection of her dedicated work ethic. I have seen her work tirelessly on schedules, events, and other school matters to make LHS more effective and efficient. She always has a smile and kind words of encouragement.
Lastly, perhaps Mrs. Pearson's greatest strength is her ability to work with students and parents. On numerous occasions, I have witnessed Mrs. Pearson masterfully diffuse a situation. Some of our most challenging students routinely drop by to check-in with her, and she always makes them feel welcomed. Her greatest legacy will be the lives she has touched as a calming voice in the storm or the friendly smile in a time of need. She is a difference-maker!
Without question, Mrs. Pearson embodies all that the GREAT award represents. I can't imagine anyone in our system more deserving of this honor.
