Congratulations to the Hawkins County Schools’ Board of Education for being recognized as a Board of Distinction at the annual TN School Board Convention. TSBA's Board of Distinction Program recognizes boards that meet specified requirements in four key areas: planning, policy, promotion and board development. Hawkins County Schools’ Board of Education is one of only twenty nine school boards across the state who currently have this designation. There are a total of 146 school boards in the state of TN.


Additionally, Board member Debbie Shedden was awarded the Premier Ambassador Award by the TSBA. The TSBA Ambassador for Education Program is a community outreach effort to increase community awareness and understanding of public education issues. This is the highest level of recognition within the ambassador program. Debbie was also selected as President-Elect of the TN School Board Association. Congratulations to Mrs. Shedden for these accomplishments.
