Schools recognise teachers and staff ‘of the year’

Brenda Bamfield was recognized as Support Person of the Year. She is pictured here with Principal McDevitt (back) and Supt. Tim Throne.

Every year a Teacher of the Year and Support Person of the Year is selected for their outstanding work and service at each of the Oxford Community Schools. From those nominations one teacher is chosen for each school level- elementary, middle, and high school and one support person is chosen for the overall district to be entered at the county level Teacher of the Year and Support Person of the Year Awards.
This year, due to the pandemic, Oakland County Schools did not run a county wide competition, however, Oxford Community Schools still carried on with choosing overall winners for the district and thanks to the generosity of Haney Farm Bureau Insurance each of those winners were awarded a $500 cash prize at Monday night’s school board meeting.
On Tuesday, May 4, Superintendent Tim Throne and several central office administrators surprised each overall winner in their school buildings with flowers and balloons to announce their award.
