Cheryl Clayton of Laburnum Elementary

YAY CHERYL CLAYTON! Cheryl Clayton, an instructional assistant at Laburnum Elementary, is today's "Yay of the Day" honoree! Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at Laburnum.


Nominator Julie MacKenzie said,

“She is beautiful inside and out. Ms. Clayton is the most kind hearted individual I have ever met. She pours love into the students and staff at Laburnum. Ms. Clayton is always calm and loving with the children. She keeps teachers encouraged and is our biggest cheerleader. Ms. Clayton is so thoughtful that she can be found stocking coffee or hot chocolate stations for the teachers lounge. She is an asset to our school and everyone who knows her loves her dearly. Ms. Clayton deserves the worlds, but a Yay of the Day is a great start."

Nominator Jacqueline Angel said,

“Ms. Clayton is the sweetest person I’ve ever met! She is so generous and loving to our students and staff. She is always patient and calm in my classroom. She buys our staff fruit, treats and has created a coffee and tea bar for us. She is truly one of a kind. Whenever I thank Ms. Clayton or give her a compliment she says “it’s all because of you”, or “you did this.” She is so humble and the most giving person!"

Nominator Jamie Spencer said,

“She is an ANGEL on Earth. She truly is the most positive, selfless, loving human being. She pours her heart and soul into not only the students but the entire staff of Laburnum."

Thank you for all you do, Cheryl Clayton, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
