School of Distinction AwardEtowah County Schools

Principal, Ms. Tisha Howell

Superintendent, Dr. Alan Cosby

Glencoe Middle School’s goal of producing students who recognized bad decisions, learned from mistakes, and recovered from failure led them to the Why Try Resilience for Youth program. This program enhanced the school’s focus on student emotional and mental health. During 2018-2019, three teachers were trained to implement and facilitate the program. Trained teachers integrated Why Try Resilience for Youth educational lessons into their courses to provide students with strategies to assist with life’s difficulties. The lessons reinforced decision-making, peer interactions, and complying with school rules/procedures. Glencoe’s eighth grade English teacher focused her first lesson on labels that students place on themselves or feel have been placed upon them. She asked a brave volunteer to stand in front of the class and write a label she felt had been placed on her on a small whiteboard. The student wrote the word, invisible. The class then wrote on a sticky note a word/label they thought of when the brave student’s name came to mind and placed them over the student’s label. Tears streamed down the student’s face as she realized the label she put on herself was not how her classmates saw her. The program provided the social, emotional, and mental support Glencoe students needed for their middle school adventures.
