Fayetteville, N.C. – As a school counselor for more than 18 years, Sharon Bowden understands the importance of providing students with additional support and encouragement. As such, Bowden, who is a counselor at Cumberland Mills Elementary, took the initiative to reach out to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. Together, they have created the “Step-Up” mentoring program, which offers tangible early intervention options for parents, teachers and students.

 
For her collaboration, Bowden is Cumberland County Schools’ (CCS) Extra Mile Award recipient for the month of December.
 
“By creating this program, Mrs. Bowden’s vision connects parents with reliable role models who share their goals of raising their children to be Confident Contributing Students (CCS),” said Latonya Brewington, a teacher at Cumberland Mills who nominated Bowden. “This program helps so many children. Mrs. Bowden deserves this award because of it.”
 
Bowden will receive a plaque and be recognized at the regular monthly Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on December 10.
 
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.
