Karen Reid taught in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools for 21 years, and she would have taught longer, if her poor health had not forced her to retire. “I became very sick with complications associated with diabetes,” Reid said, “but I am thankful for the years I was allowed to pursue my passion -- teaching children, watching them grow and learn, witnessing the light bulb that went off when they realized they COULD really read or write -- and now hearing about their careers and life choices. They gave me more than I could have ever given them.”
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation is delighted to announce the recipients of the 2021 Endowed Teaching Chair Awards.
On April 28, dozens of students, support staff and administrators from both Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and Orange County Schools joined together in a virtual session to continue crucial conversations about increasing education and broad support for adolescent mental health.
