Arnold Mill ES Names 2018 Teacher of the Year

“Mrs. Stancil is an outstanding educator and well-loved and respected by the students, staff and families at Arnold Mill,” Principal Daniel Fuller said.

Stancil now is eligible for the honor of Cherokee County School District’s 2018 Teacher of the Year. Each CCSD school nominates a teacher for the competition, which is judged by a panel of retired educators and community leaders. The winner will be surprised in his or her classroom by the Superintendent of Schools this fall and will be honored in November, along with each school’s winner, at Legacy Makers: Cherokee County School District’s 2018 Teachers of the Year Celebration sponsored by CCSD Partners.

twth-in-flora-2016-2The 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, along with a mobile education center, will be displayed outside Arnold Mill Elementary School at 710 Arnold Mill Road, Woodstock.

The Wall That Heals is scheduled to arrive on campus, with a Patriot Guard and Warrior Watch escort (Northpoint Parkway to Highway 92 to Trickum Road to Arnold Mill Road), at approximately 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, November 16. A media briefing is planned for 11 a.m., and the Wall then will be erected over the course of four hours.

An official welcome ceremony will be presented by the school at 10 a.m. Thursday, November 17. The display then will be open to the public to view at no charge through 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 20.

The Wall That Heals honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed forces during the Vietnam War and its walls bear the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is the most visited memorial in our Nation’s Capital, with more than four million visitors each year. However, many Americans have not been able to visit what has become known to many as “The Wall.” The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF), the organization that built The Wall, wants to give all veterans and their family members all across America an opportunity to see the Memorial.

The Wall That Heals will be open 24 hours a day beginning November 17, 2016. There is no charge for admission.
