YAY AMY EL-KHOURI! Amy El-Khouri of the Deep Run High School music department is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Amy recently at Deep Run.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Sarah Canas-Berroteran said: “She always keeps a positive attitude. One example of a way she makes a positive impact: she gives us mental health breaks during the end of the quarter.”

Danielle Harker said: “Mrs. El-Khouri deserves a Yay of the Day because she always makes everyone feel valued in chorus class, including me. She always shows compassion toward her students. A specific example of her positivity was the day of my geometry SOL in 10th grade. I was having a mental breakdown because I was extremely stressed about it. Mrs. El-Khouri went above and beyond and sat next to me and talked to me to calm me down and even walked me to my testing room. She helped me out a lot that day and it meant a lot to me.”

Thank you for all you do, Amy, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
