November Teachers and Support Staff of the Month
Nick Brobst – I am truly thankful for Mr. Brobst because he cares about his students and treats each one with respect. I’m thankful that teaching has been one of his true passions in life.
Caleb Taylor – I am thankful for Mr. Taylor because he always brightens my day and is able to teach new things in a fun and creative way. I appreciate his care and concern for every student.
Zach Weldon – I am thankful for Mr. Weldon because he is down to earth, has a sense of humor, is respectful to his students, & makes learning history fun.
Andy Marine – I am thankful for Professor Marine because he has been a big help to me as a writer, does a great job teaching the Ivy Tech course, is respectful, and always listens to understand, not reply.
Dan Moses – I am thankful for Dan Moses because he has put in a lot of time and has done a great job of getting our new laptops installed and keeping us connected to the internet. We wish him well in his new position within the corporation.
Lori Smith - This past month of purchase order deadlines has made it a particularly rough one, added to the normal craziness of ringing phones, plotting absent teachers’ coverage – including doing the coverage herself! – calming angry/upset/anxious parents, & calming angry/upset/anxious teachers. Through it all, Lori continues to wear a smile and has a can-do attitude. She takes care of all of us and directs all the business of the office: could we manage without her? I wonder: does she know just how much we are amazed by her? I think she should get an award every week.
National Honor Society Inductees
Mooresville High School is extremely proud of the students who were inducted into the National Honor Society on December 5, 2016. This year, 86 students earned the privilege of being selected for this achievement. The inductees must uphold the four pillars of the National Honor Society: Character, Scholarship, Service, and Leadership. Advisers Mrs. Nicki Manion and Ms. Sharon Eickhoff look forward to working with these outstanding students.

October Teachers and Support Staff of the Month
Matt Bosworth – He is scary good. Someone who cares & works as hard as he does to help his students get the best grade possible definitely deserves to be teacher of the month.
Joyce Gilly – She scares students with work. She is a great choice because she states things so bluntly to make students scared to contradict her will.
Jason Zollman – If you make him mad, he gets scary, thus he is scary good. He is scary good because he scares his students by encouraging them to do their best.
Kelly Blackwell – She will scare you into learning. She takes every extra measure necessary to make sure you understand the material. She deserves to be Teacher of the Month.
Becky Bischoff – She is the ultimate go-to-person for many of us. She goes above and beyond to show kindness to our students in student services. Becky is spooky good at doing her job.
