Yay of the Day awardee, Beth Ann Norvell of Gayton Elementary School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY BETH ANN NORVELL! Beth Ann Norvell, a speech pathologist at Gayton Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Savannah Cooper said: “She helps students gain language skills to form bonds with their peers and the world they live in, and she does it with love and positivity no matter what the day brings. During virtual learning, Beth Ann invested tons of personal time researching and coming up with ways to make virtual lessons beneficial and exciting for ALL students — even though it meant going the extra 10 miles! Her desk is decorated with thank-you notes from students whose language-confidence grows each day and whose lives are being shaped by this wonderful woman.”

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