Melissa Little was named as the Elementary recipient for her innovative lesson designs, leading copious amounts of professional development for her peers, and completing the highest level of Orff Certification for music education.

NaviGo Scholars Program
Jordan Boschert is a sophmore at CCHS and loves sports, building things, and helping others. His well-rounded talent was what lead the leaders at Duke Energy to choose Jordan as one of their 2014 NaviGo scholars. Jordan says former NFL star Herschel Walker is his bigggest influence because he started with nothing, but with self-determination, became one of the best running backs in NFL history.
Jordan hopes his own self-determination will lead him into a career of either civil engineering or teaching. We can't wait to see what you accomplish, Jordan!
