Posted on 08/31/2018
Caze Elementary School Social Worker Samantha Potts is the September recipient of the EVSC’s Cause for Applause award. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.

Potts was nominated by a fellow employee at Caze. In the nomination letter, the coworker sites examples of how Potts goes above and beyond, including organizing food bags, Hangers, Coat-A-Kid and much more. According to the coworker, Potts has taken on some of the biggest projects at Caze, and also heads many groups at Caze which take up a considerable amount of time each week.

“She can be tied directly to the beautification of Caze through organizing the Master Gardners who have made our courtyard an amazing outdoor classroom, organizing City Serve to clean up our school inside and out, working with churches to get playground equipment repainted and so much more,” wrote the coworker. “Simply put, Caze and all of our students’ lives are better because of the hard work, dedication, passion and the passion that Samantha gives.”

Anyone can nominate an employee of the EVSC for the award. Deadline for nominations is the third Friday of each month.
