Dr. Cheri Waggoner is the Greenville
ISD “Hero of Hope” for January 2019. She is a licensed specialist in school
phycology in special education at L. P. Waters Preschool and Carver Elementary.

Dr. Waggoner was nominated by many
GISD staff, parents, teachers, and others for this prestigious honor.

 “She is diligent with her work and
meticulous in making sure things are done effectively,” L.P. Waters Early
Childhood Learning Center Principal Sebastian Bozas wrote. “She is an
advocate for kids … kids that many times don’t have an advocate. She has been
a blessing at L.P. Waters,”

 Dr. Waggoner serves students on many campuses,
and her impact is felt districtwide. She was honored at the school board
meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15. She received a debit card for $100,
thanks to Lone Star Credit Union, the official underwriter of Greenville ISD’s
Hero of Hope program. Also, she has already received a beautiful bouquet of
flowers, donated by Adkisson’s Florist.

 “One of the greatest opportunities we
have as educators is to change the life of a child,” Superintendent Dr.
Demetrus Liggins said. “Since that is the most important focus of our
work, this is one of the highest honors we can give to an employee.”
