GRATITUDE AND GIVING
We love the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays at YEC because they tie in so nicely with what we are all about – being grateful for our blessings and giving to others.
I want you to know that I am truly grateful for being the principal at Yadkin Early College and consider myself to be one of the most fortunate men in Yadkin County for it!
First, I am thankful for our wonderful students and strive to be my very best for them each day. It is so good to see their smiling faces and to watch them work with their peers and our teachers in the classrooms each day. I tell people everywhere I go what well-behaved and hard-working students we have!
I am extremely grateful for our capable staff who work so hard every day to provide quality lessons for our students to prepare them for a successful life. They know what to teach. They know how to teach. And they know how to challenge our students to do their best.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how appreciative we are for our parents. The partnership we enjoy is so special! Whether it is providing transportation for a child who needs extra tutoring for a class or by driving to another county to support a child participating in a College Cup competition or showing up on a cold, rainy morning to serve hot chocolate to the kids when they arrive, we truly are blessed to have such supportive parents. Thank you!
As we come into and go through the seasons of gratitude and giving, let’s all remember to see the glass half full, and not half empty. Let’s count our many blessings rather than focus on a few bad things going on in our lives. And yes, let’s continue to be grateful for our school and give our very best to help it remain the crown jewel of Yadkin County education.
