Director of the Grand River Technical School of Chillicothe Jayme Caughron has been selected to receive the National School Administrator Award sponsored by the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America.
Caughron will receive the award during the National Leadership Conference this summer and was one of two administrators who received the State Administrator of the Year Award at the State Conference in March.
Caughron supports FCCLA membership, fundraising, and national program activities by promoting student-organized events through school email and social media. She encourages her Family and Consumer Sciences classes to spearhead involvements in integrated FCCLA curriculum, encouraging leadership activities that benefit students and the community. She volunteers at FCCLA events and assists advisers with scheduling, time, and transportation.
Caughron spearheaded the addition of the hospitality and tourism program at the Grand River Technical School and encouraged FCCLA membership and participation by creating a flexible solution of having two affiliation options to meet student needs.
Chillicothe FCCLA Chapter Adviser Kerrie Campbell said Caughron supports all FCCLA students, holds high expectations of her teachers and students, and is willing to listen and critique interviews and projects to prepare students.
