YAY MATTHEW MURRAY! Matthew Murray of Quioccasin Middle School is one of today’s “Yay of the Day” honorees. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored him recently at Quioccasin.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Kian Malaugh said: “He deserves a “Yay of the day” because he cares for all his students and wants to have genuine conversations with them. A specific example of a time he made a positive impact is when he talked to his students before class about how online school was going. He wanted to listen so he could know if his students were having a good time in his class.”

Tanika Lawson said: “Mr. Murray, an administrative aide and business teacher, is eager to explore and improve! He has been a vital member of our Equity Task Force and has been a great addition to our administrative team. He most recently facilitated our Virtual Veterans Day Assembly with a very short turnaround. He has a history of stepping in as needed and a mission of enhancing our school climate. He also serves as sponsor of our step team and FBLA!”

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