Ms. Regina Duggan School Nutrition Assistant at Baldwin High School Nominated by Helene Allen, co-worker

Ms. Regina Duggans has been working with the Baldwin County School District since 1992. She is described by her co-worker as having a warm smile and her co-worker refers to Ms. Duggans as the “bright star” for BHS cafeteria.

She is described as being a hard worker who knows just what everyone needs. Ms. Duggans, thank you for your example of excellence!

Ms. Heather Cox Teacher at Oak Hill Middle School

Nominated by Katie Whipple, community member Ms. Heather Cox is working in her 16th year with Baldwin County School District, but she is no stranger to education. She has over 25 years of experience. Some of the words used to describe Ms. Cox include inspirational, passionate and supportive. The expectations that Ms. Cox has for her students challenges them to be independent adolescents in spite of any challenges that they are living with. Not only does Ms. Cox focus on the little things that students need for success, but she also tackles the big tasks, including the very big task of moving a piano! In preparation for the music therapy session, Ms. Cox literally moved a piano off of the auditorium stage, truly going above and beyond for the needs of students. Ms. Cox, thank you for modelling excellence!
