BATESVILLE – October 15, 2012 – Lorrie McClure, who coordinates the “Parents As Teachers” program at the Batesville Early Learning and Enrichment Center, was named today as the October recipient of the Citizens Bank Above & Beyond Award. Citizens Bank and the Batesville School District created the award to recognize school staff members who go “above and beyond” in their service to the district.
Personnel throughout all schools can nominate prospective recipients of the monthly award, which includes a certificate from the Board of Education and a $50 gift card from Citizens Bank.
“Lorrie supervises ten people as well as conducts home visits and group meetings at least one night per month; supervises the Resource Center, food closet and clothes closet; writes and administers grants; is on the Coordinated Care Network and the state advisory board for Parents as Teachers,” according to one nomination of Ms. McClure. “She is a great resource for parents who need services of any kind. She never asks anyone to do what she has not done or is not willing to do herself. She is also involved in her church and works with the youth group.”
Doug Lynch, Citizens Bank Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, was scheduled to present the awards to Ms. McClure.
