LMS is Flying High
Louisville Middle School was awarded the 2015 High Flying School destination by the National Youth-At-Risk Conference which is hosted by The College of Education and The Division of Continuing Education at Georgia Southern University, Statesboro.
Among the criteria required to win the award are high achievement, community collaboration and citizenship development. The school met all the criteria for this distinction and was selected by the committee for this award.
Each school selected as a 2015 High-Flying School received an invitation to the 26th Annual National Youth-At-Risk Conference that will be held in Savannah, from March 1 to March 4.
Louisville Middle School will be recognized at an awards ceremony and will share their school success in a High Flying School Showcase.
This conference showcases nationally recognized keynote and featured speakers who provide professional development for adults serving youth, especially in high-poverty schools (Title I) and communities.
Over 120 training sessions provide research-based programs and best practices for creating safe, healthy, caring, and intellectually empowering educational environments that foster the well-being of all children and adolescents.
Upon receiving notice that Louisville Middle was among only three schools that were chosen from Georgia for this prestigious honor, Louisville Middle School Principal Ken Hildebrant noted,
“This award is a true testament to the quality of our teachers and the persistence of our students at Louisville Middle School,” Louisville Middle Principal Ken Hildebrant said upon learning that his school was among only three schools chosen in the state of Georgia.
“The hard work and attention by the teachers, students, parents and community stakeholders has been invested substantially in our programs and now we are reaping the benefits of everyone’s efforts.”
Hildebrant said Louisville Middle wanted to thank every student, parent, teacher, community stakeholders and the Jefferson County Board of Education for supporting the school’s efforts to improve in all areas of the award criteria
