Golden Anchor Award recipient Price goes ‘above and beyond’ to help students

ROCK HALL — A special education instructional assistant at Kent County Middle School was honored last week for how she builds strong relationships with students and families.

At the March 11 Kent County Board of Education meeting, Brenda Price received the Golden Anchor Award, which is presented each month to staff members or groups of employees who exemplify the mission and core values of the school system.

“Kent County Public Schools is an anchor organization that creates an environment of academic excellence through a collaborative, equitable and rigorous learning community,” the mission statement reads.

Nominations are submitted by Kent County Public Schools staff, parents and students.

Price was nominated by coworker and special education teacher Chris Kleiver.

Kent County Public Schools Supervisor of Human Resources Dan Hushion, KCMS Principal Mark Buckel and Kleiver presented the award to Price.

“This month we’re very proud to be able to present this award to Miss Brenda Price,” Buckel said.

Reading from Kleiver’s nomination letter, Buckel said Price goes above and beyond to help students.

“We often have students who want to spend lunchtime with Brenda,” Kleiver wrote.

According to Kleiver’s nomination letter, Price doesn’t just make strong bonds with students at school, she also connects with families in the community.
