Congratulations to Bethany Taff for being awarded the High Five Award! Awarded to Bethany Taff from Leigh Garth. Here is what Leigh had to say about Bethany: "I am passing the HIGH FIVE Award to Bethany Taff Bethany is hard working, bright, and inspiring! She engages in her kids, and her commitment is endless to them. I love how she finds a way to engage with her students on their likes and needs. She challenges her kids to be expressive such as her book-publishing project. She is compassionate to those around her. I have witnessed her see the needs of others and step in with a willingness of whatever that might be. She connects with the kids and, she is their biggest cheerleader! She is a “do’er” right along beside them. I love that she takes great pride in what she does and how she does it. I always brag on her, she is one that always has her stuff done in a timely manner. She does a superb job on her paperwork, found that out during the pandemic. Bethany is top notch! When she came to us four years ago, I knew from the moment she walked in she would impact kids here at White County Central. We are blessed to have you here! You inspire me to be better! I am proud to work with you!" Thank you, Bethany Taff, for your service to WCC!

During the time of the pandemic and this school year, they have been extremely flexible and organized to be able to distribute meals to meet the needs at that time. They have tirelessly planned and strategically prepared lunches for bus delivery and classroom distribution. They also give additional effort for extracurricular events, such as the senior dinner with the superintendent. They take time to know each child and greet them daily with a hug and a smile.
