Savannah-Chatham County Public School System

SCCPSS Announces Finalists for 2021 Instructional Support Person of the Year

Published on: 6/15/2020

​​Each year the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System recognizes support staff such as nurses, paraprofessionals, custodians, cafeteria workers, media clerks, counselor clerks, and secretaries.  Each school chooses a site-based representative who then competes to be named the District's Instructional Support Person of the Year. 

The Instructional Support Person of the Year will act as a representative for all Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools' instructional support personnel. Responsibilities include: serving on the Superintendent's Professional Senate, providing updates during monthly School Board Meetings, serving on the ISPY Selection Committee and acting as an advocate for the school system.

The five finalists for our 2021 Instructional Support Person of the Year have been announced.  They are:

Karlaina Burns (Early Learning Center at Formey School)
Dawn Miller (Coastal Middle School)
Terrie Keldie (Oglethorpe Charter School)
Melvin Nesbitt (Brock Elementary School)
Sharon Pearce (Islands High School)

Congratulations to all of our representatives! To view each school's nominee, click Representatives.pdf.​
