Congratulations to our own Cathy Adams who was recently awarded the 2019 Oklahoma Medal for Excellence in elementary teaching. This prestigious medal is awarded annually to five outstanding Oklahoma teachers, with one being at the elementary level.

Ms. Adams is the school counselor at Piedmont Elementary. She teaches social-emotional learning and bullying prevention. Ms. Adams has been an educator for 30 years, beginning as a special education teacher then becoming a school counselor in 1990. She was a 2018 finalist for Oklahoma Teacher of the Year and two-time Teacher of the Year honoree for Piedmont Elementary.

Along with the medal, she will receive a $5,000 cash prize and a glass “Roots and Wings” sculpture at the Academic Awards Banquet on May 18 in Tulsa.  We are honored to have Ms. Adams as a valuable asset to the Piedmont School District.
