Yay of the Day awardee, Austin Frank of J.R. Tucker High School, receiving his swag bag.

YAY AUSTIN FRANK! Austin Frank of J.R. Tucker High School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored the band teacher recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Mindy Meeks said: “He role models positivity and flexibility. Even in the midst of new construction, lack of our own field or space, and coming back from a virtual band atmosphere, he has met each of these challenges with a smile, dedication, flexibility and enthusiasm! GO MARCHING TIGERS!”

Kamal Mahmoud said, “He is a great teacher — he drives me to work my hardest and makes class fun for everyone. He gives positive feedback and really understands what it is like to be in high school.”

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