SHERWOOD, Ark. -- Ms. Quynci Williams, Sylvan Hills High School Assistant Principal, has been selected as the 2020 Sherwood Educator of the Year by the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce.
“I often state that educators must continually monitor and adjust,” said Sylvan Hills High Principal Tracy Allen. “Ms. Williams has exemplified that this past year with the changes and pivots experienced due to the pandemic and the changes in her work description. Ms. Wiilliams always rolls up her sleeves and attacks the day, and our school and community are the benefactors from her tireless efforts.”
Sherwood Educator of the Year is a community-centered award process. The Sherwood Chamber accepts applications from the community through social media and local media. Nominations are submitted directly to the Chamber and reviewed by a committee of community members and local businesses. The winner is selected by this committee and recognized at the annual Sherwood Chamber Banquet.
In a pre-recorded video played at this year’s awards ceremony held on March 4, Ms. Williams said: “My grandmother, grandfather, great aunt all were educators. And my mom is currently an educator. So I think I was just destined to be an educator.”
The Sherwood Educator of the Year is selected by a panel of judges from community nominations.
