Tabitha Victory receives Sandite Pacesetter Award

At the May Sand Springs Board of Education meeting, the board presented the Sandite Pacesetter Award to Tabitha Victory and Coy Caviness.

Ms. Victory is a paraprofessional at Angus Valley Elementary, and she was nominated by teacher Kasey Willden. Ms. Willden says that Ms. Victory goes above and beyond every day by coming in 30 minutes early, staying late, and forming special bonds with her students while maintaining high expectations. In her nomination form, Ms. Willden writes, “My classroom would not run as smoothly or as bright without having Ms. T in it.”

Clyde Boyd Middle School teacher Coy Caviness was nominated by his former student, eighth grader Shae Edelman. Mr. Caviness helped Shae work through the loss of her grandmother last year, and he still helps her through the trials of eighth grade, even though she is no longer his student. In her nomination form, Shae writes that “Mr. Caviness is an exceptional teacher… and very deserving of the Sandite Pacesetter Award.”

Congratulations to Ms. Victory and Mr. Caviness! Thank you for your outstanding service to Sand Springs Public Schools.
