Myers named District Employee of the Year

Congratulations to the Chesterfield County School District Employee of the Year, Mrs. Brenda Myers. Mrs. Myers was recognized at this year's districtwide Opening Day Kick-Off.
Myers is the attendance clerk at Cheraw Intermediate School. According to her principal, Mr. Scott Eddins, “Mrs. Myers’ work ethic is unrivaled. She is the first one to school every day; not because this is her assigned time, but because she wants to be. She comes early to get her 'To Do' list of responsibilities completed before the normal workday demands of students, parents and teachers begin. She is patient, kind and always puts the needs of others before her own, which makes her a true servant leader. Hands down, students and staff love her; she is most deserving of this recognition and she is a great representative of all employees in our school district.”
