LEXINGTON, Ky. (2/6/13) – Cornel Carter of Cardinal Valley Elementary is the Asbury Educator of the Month for February. He received an award, a $50 gift card to Rafferty’s and a framed copy of the Lexington Family Magazine article at the Feb. 5 faculty meeting after school.
Carter is in his third year as home/school liaison at Cardinal Valley; he also worked at Northern and Russell elementaries. Janice Wyatt-Ross, a consultant at Cardinal Valley, nominated him for the award.
“It means a lot that somebody thinks I’m doing a good job. It also shows the great work we’re doing here in Fayette County schools in general,” Carter said. “I was surprised, but it reinforces that I’m here for a reason. I’m where I need to be.”
Carter works closely with school counselor Sherry Howard, social worker Juanita Green and Family Resource Center director Carmen Cotto to help struggling students and their families. “They make every day easier and a joy here at Cardinal Valley,” he said of his colleagues.
Lexington Family Magazine collects nominations for Educator of the Month, and the honorees are selected by sponsor Asbury University.
