Posted on 11/04/2019
Harper Elementary School Teacher Elizabeth Arnold is the November recipient of the EVSC’s Cause for Applause award. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.

Arnold was nominated by a coworker who wrote about all the wonderful qualities Arnold embodies, as well as everything she does for the school and students.

“Dedicated. Caring. Energetic. Dependable. Loyal. Thoughtful. Warm. Flexible. Compassionate. These are just a few words that describe our friend, Beth Arnold,” wrote her nominator.

Arnold’s nominator goes on to say that Arnold facilitates all Harper’s family events, sets them up and even shops for them. She also says Arnold is constantly shopping for students, making sure they have clothing, food, supplies and even Christmas presents. “If you were to walk the halls of Harper, every child would know who Mrs. Arnold is!

“Not only is she great for our school, she is a great co-worker. She is willing to offer any advice, give a helping hand, or help out a new teacher. All of us at Harper are lucky to call her our friend.”
