Turner County School System recognizes the Distinguished Service Award Recipients for the month of January 2014, Mrs. Patricia Harris and Mr. Bobby Williams.




Patricia Harris

This award nomination was made by several staff members and here is some of what they had to say:


“Mrs. Harris is always open to new ideas and is there to listen to any concerns teachers or parents have.  She shows love to each and every child.”

“Mrs. Harris helps by giving all teachers ideas about their lessons that keep students on the right track.”

“Mrs. Harris always makes sure that her babies are taken care of.  When she sees a child in need she spends her own money to get clothes, food or whatever is needed to meet the need.”

“Mrs. Harris has been a teacher, Pre-K Director, friend and boss.  She is very professional.”

“Mrs. Harris has managed to juggle many duties.  She stands behind her staff 100%.  She has really done a lot for the community.”

“Mrs. Harris is an asset for Turner County Schools.”

Bobby Williams

“Mr. Bobby is a very special person.  He always goes above and beyond what is required.  He is always cheerful and encouraging.  He is ready and willing to assist in any way to get things that are needed to be done in the classroom.  Bobby Williams is much deserving of this award because he does many behind the scene things that are taken for granted.”
