Yay of the Day awardee, Paul Matts of Hungary Creek Middle School, receiving his swag bag.

YAY PAUL MATTS! Paul Matts, a P.E. teacher and the athletic director at Hungary Creek Middle School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored him recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Suzanne Wallis said: “He puts his students and athletes first each and every day. Coach Matts always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He really creates a positive team environment as head soccer coach and encourages sportsmanship and respect on the field. He has been dedicated to athletics at HCMS for many years and will be remembered fondly by all his students.”

“During the bus driver shortage he drove the activity bus for soccer and football to ensure that his athletes got to the game. He also organized an amazing banquet at the end of soccer and made sure to tell each player the positive impact they had had on the team.”

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