Educator Brashers named Mt. Vernon School District’s MVP of the Year

On Friday, May 3, the Mt. Vernon School District held their end of year  celebration. They honored the following retirees: Jeremy Smith, Amanda Bradshaw, Lisa Barnes, Tracy Jensen, Dana Moomey, Jim Kleine, Nick Swillum, Amy Smith, Sheila Hansen, Kim Stidham and Brenda Turk.
They also recognized Tammy Brashers as the Mt. Vernon School District MVP of the Year for the 2023-2024 school year.
Brashers, who was also named as the April MVP, teaches third grade at Mt. Vernon Intermediate School.
When nominating her for MVP, one of her peers said:

“Tammy Brashers embodies the essence of leadership through her actions and character rather than relying on formal titles. her leadership style is characterized by humility, empathy, and a genuine commitment to serving others. By consistently leading by example and approaching her work with a servant heart, Tammy sets a high standard for those around her. Whether it’s volunteering for family nights or offering assistance to colleagues, she demonstrates a willingness to go above and beyond for the benefit of her school community.
Tammy’s leadership extends beyond the school walls as she actively engages with professional organizations such as MSTA (Missouri State Teachers Association) and GOSCD (Greater Ozarks Cooperating School Districts). her involvement in these organizations not only reflects her dedication to her profession but also her advocacy for educators and students on a broader scale. Moreover, Tammy’s commitment to staying informed about legislative issues affecting education and taking acting by contacting legislators underscores her advocacy and proactive approach to addressing challenges facing the education system.”
