Flipping the Script Awards Ceremony

The CCS Student Services Department sponsored the Flipping the Script Awards Ceremony.
Recently, I was asked to serve as a co-host for the Flipping the Script Awards Ceremony.  Flipping the Script is an initiative/competition that aims to highlight dropout prevention and awareness through the creation of PSAs and music videos.  Students from numerous elementary, middle, and high schools within the Cumberland County Schools System submitted videos with the hopes of winning the grand prize.

I was recruited as a co-host because of the Dropout Prevention PSA that I acted in a few years ago (click here to see the PSA - http://www.tarheelteachers.blogspot.com/2013/08/marlow-artishigh-school-student.html).

My illustrious co-host was Amy Noble (2013-2014 Cumberland County Schools Teacher of the Year).  I loved sharing this experience with her because she has been a mentor/friend since the beginning of my teaching career!



The event was a first-class affair.  The clothes, food, decorations, and venue were all beautiful and glamorous.  The event was certainly filled with the Who's Who of Cumberland County Schools from Dr. Till (Superintendent), Board Members (Susan Williams, Larry Lancaster, and Carrie Sutton), Administrators, Teachers, and our wonderful students.

All of the students/videos were very talented.  However, there were only three winners (one for each category of elementary, middle, and high schools).
