Our educators impact the lives of so many of students—even ones that aren’t inside their classrooms.

Matthew Plummer is a Student Mentor and Instructional Support educator at A.L. Brown. He serves students with developmental disabilities, but his nomination comes because of the impact he had on an A.L. Brown student after a chance encounter in the community.

The parent that nominated Mr. Plummer said that she and her son ran into Mr. Plummer last year. After talking for a while, Mr. Plummer invited the student to come to his classroom for extra help. Her son had always struggled in school, but after he started going to Mr. Plummer, everything changed. He saw how much Mr. Plummer cared about him and realized he could ask him about school or life without being judged. She says her son now sees Mr. Plummer’s classroom as a place where he can do homework, study, or just talk about things that are bothering him. She believes Mr. Plummer has helped make her son’s high school experience a positive one and has made a big difference in her son’s life.       

This is the kind of extraordinary influence that makes public education special. We’re proud that Matt Plummer is part of our KCS family, and we’re delighted that Tim Vaughn of Hilbish Ford honored his excellence with the Hilbish Award for May. Congratulations!
