Clinton High School receptionist wins DOVE Award

Hundreds of children, parents and visitors come to the Clinton High School front office on any given week, where they are greeted with a smile and a kind word.

“She is always respectful to anyone who enters the front office,” said CHS media specialist Loran Taylor. “She compiles the Arrowhead, our online announcements, promptly every day.”

Her words and actions have not gone unnoticed; Emerson is the recipient of the Clinton Public School District’s Dedication of Our Valued Employees — or DOVE — customer service award for the month of November.

She was nominated by Taylor who praised her professionalism and demeanor.

“She is a great example of the customer service the district offers to students, parents, teachers and the community,” Taylor said.

The DOVE Award is given to one CPSD employee per month who demonstrates excellence in customer service. The award is based on nominations from the public.

Wardlaw will be recognized at the December school board meeting, planned for Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Central Office.

“One of our top priorities as a school district is customer service, and we appreciate employees like Mrs. Emerson who are making a difference in the lives of the students we serve,” said Dr. Tim Martin, superintendent of schools.
