CJ Dial is the May Laker Champion for Kids

C.J. Dial has been named the Laker Champion for Kids for the month of May. Dial works as math teacher at Calloway County High School.  The Laker Champion for Kids is awarded each month to a Laker staff member who goes above and beyond for students and colleagues.

“He is a self-starter who continually looks for ways to put our students out front and get the most out of their experience at CCHS," said CCHS principal Steve Smith. "And besides being an outstanding math teacher, he is the epitome of a 'school person.'  He is a tech liaison for our school; he started the Technical Math class. He takes student-athletes to the elementary schools to read to the students, and he does this on his planning time. He operates the sound system for us at pep rallies and events, and he serves as an SBDM member. Because of his work ethic, many talents, and generous spirit, he is respected by students, staff and administration. We are fortunate to have him at CCHS, and he is a true Laker-4-Life.”

Dial was nominated by East Calloway Elementary teacher Ashley Dial, who is also his wife.

"He is a hardworking and dedicated teacher," said Mrs. Dial. "He has an awesome rapport with not only his students, but students across the high school and district. He is always willing to help students whenever it is needed. He is accommodating and empathetic. If a student needs help at 8:00pm, he doesn't think twice about providing assistance and feedback in order to help students be successful. His students and coworkers love him. He is a definite asset to our school district.
