CCHS's Edwina Rogers Named March Laker Champion for Kids

Calloway County Schools has named Edwina Rogers the March Laker Champion for Kids.  

The Laker Champion for Kids is awarded each month to a Laker staff member who goes above and beyond for students and colleagues. Rogers is an instructional assistant for students with disabilities at Calloway County High School.

Rogers was nominated by her colleague Brenna Parrish, who wrote, “She will do anything to make her students feel loved and at home. She loves teaching her students to cook and keeping them all laughing.”

Director of Special Education Lynsey Smith also believes Rogers is deserving of the award.

“When I think about a selfless person who goes above and beyond daily for our students and staff, she comes to my mind," said Smith. "She works tirelessly to ensure that our students are involved and included through her teaching of life skills and work skills.  Even on the hardest days, she has a smile on her face and can find the positive in any situation.  She is a champion for all kids!"

CCHS principal Steve Smith also thinks highly of Rogers.

“She is a breath of fresh air to Calloway County High School.  She has a tremendous attitude, cares deeply about her students, and always goes the extra mile.  Her job requires patience, understanding, and a motherly approach, and she does it all with a smile on her face each and every day.  She is a true Laker-4-Life and definitely a champion for kids!”
