Fayetteville, N.C. – Caitlin Hunt, a sixth-grade English Language Arts teacher at South View Middle School, saw a need at her school and decided to do something about it. Hunt noticed that some students were in need of warm clothing to wear during the colder months of the year. As such, she coordinated efforts to purchase every sixth-grade student a sweatshirt to ensure that no child would be without warmth on a cold day. Hunt noted the importance of attending to the needs of the ‘whole child’ to ensure that students can engage in meaningful learning experiences in the classroom setting.

“Mrs. Hunt feeds the minds of her students every day with knowledge, but she also feeds their hearts and souls with love each and every day with her generosity and caring attitude,” said Jody Phillips, the media coordinator at South View, who nominated Hunt.

Hunt’s altruistic efforts have earned her the prestigious honor of being named November’s Extra Mile Award recipient for Cumberland County Schools (CCS). She will receive a plaque and be recognized at the next Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on Nov. 8.

Based on the district’s core values, which are part of CCS’ Strategic Plan 2024, the Extra Mile Award is designed to acknowledge employees who demonstrate a sustained high level of performance and inspire others to do their best.

Any permanent full-time or part-time employee is eligible for this monthly recognition program. Nominations can be submitted here: https://tinyurl.com/y4q4gzc9. Nominations are due by the 15th of each month. To learn more about CCS’ Extra Mile Award, visit www.extramileaward.ccs.k12.nc.us.
