CLINTON — Alicia Scott is the kind of teacher who works with all students and looks for ways to help others in the classroom.

“She is an example of someone who makes our school a better place,” said her co-worker, Tammy Miller. “She is a terrific role model due to her dedication, hard work, positive attitude, dependability and showing kindness to others.”

Her co-worker Julie Meeks agreed, praising her work with a sight-impaired student.

“She displays the patience of Job and always has a smile on her face,” Meeks said. “We are a big family at Northside and Alicia Scott is a loved and respected member.”

Scott is the recipient of the Clinton Public School District’s Dedication of Our Valued Employees — or DOVE — customer service award for the month of January.

She was nominated by multiple teachers at Northside.

“She is always willing to lend a helping hand to any child who needs it,” said Kim Price. “She always goes above and beyond her duties as an assistant. She does anything that is asked of her and always with a smile.”

The DOVE Award is given to one CPSD employee per month who demonstrates excellence in customer service. The award is based on nominations from the public.

Scott will be recognized at the February school board meeting, planned for Tuesday, Feb. 11 at Central Office.
