The Flagship Awards are part of Port Clinton City School District’s recognition program to honor parents, community members, staff and students that help the district fulfill its motto of “Proudly Charting a Course for Success.”
At their Feb. 18 meeting, the Port Clinton Board of Education recognized the following individuals with Flagship Awards.
Nanette Yoh, Crew Award (Community)
Three years ago, a recess reading intervention program was started at the former Jefferson Elementary School. Nanette Yoh was one of the first parent volunteers. She came in every week during recess for the entire school year to help students with reading. In 2011-12, Nanette was back again to help with the program and she was given additional tasks on the side. When a new coordinator was needed in 2012, Nanette was on board, assuming the role even though her children were now in middle school.
Nanette recruits and schedules all the volunteers and also continues to volunteer herself several times a week. Her positive attitude and dedication to each student’s growth is truly inspiring. Bataan Intermediate is grateful for Nanette Yoh giving her time and talents to their learning community. The Port Clinton Board of Education thanked her for her leadership and commitment to learning with a Flagship Crew Award.
