Heritage Middle School (HMS) is seeking nominations for the 2021 Heritage Middle School Hall of Fame Award.
Each year HMS recognizes members in the community who have played a major role in contributing to the development of the children in Chino Valley.
The first recipients, back in 1989, were Alford Pott, a longtime member of the CVUSD’s Board of Trustees, and Lucy Bates, who volunteered her home as a place for social and recreational activities for the youth of Chino Valley. Over the years, many school employees, volunteers, and board members have been nominated, but there have also been parents, community leaders, a town librarian, little league coaches, and even a judge.
Is there a person you know who goes that extra mile to make sure the children of Chino Valley are safe or well-fed? Do you know someone who has helped a child learn how to play a sport or has dedicated his or her time in any other way to the children? That’s exactly the kind of person HMS is looking for.
Please send your nominations to Heritage Middle School, 1076 North Road 1 West, Chino Valley, AZ 86323 or call 928-636-4464. Or come by and ask to speak to Principal Julie Bryce or school secretary Beth Watson. The deadline to submit your nomination is Monday, April 26, 2021.
Nominations should include a picture of the person being nominated, your reasons for nominating him or her (300 words or less), and your contact information, name, and phone number. Nominees will be recognized at the Chino Valley Unified School Board Meeting on May 7, 2021 at 5:00 pm.
