The Cherokee County School District is celebrating future educators this month!

High schools are holding “signing day” events as part of Teacher Appreciation Month to honor graduating seniors who plan to pursue careers in education.

Cherokee High School, Etowah High School and Sequoyah High School hosted the special events this week, with more schools hosting events next week.

“Learning one of your students plans to be a teacher is an incredibly proud moment for an educator,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “I’m so proud of each of these students for making the decision to influence eternity by teaching the next generation.  We hope to see you back in our classrooms in a few years to rejoin the #CCSDfam as a teacher.  Congratulations and thank you!”
