Support Lisa Leave a comment for Lisa

Lisa Hornsby was nominated by a colleague who wishes to remain anonymous.

Lisa Hornsby was recently named vice principal of Reeltown Elementary School, where she has had her nose to the grindstone ever since. Over the last couple of years, she has transitioned from a classroom teacher to intervention coach, and finally became vice principal. Throughout these transitions, Ms. Hornsby was also in school as a student, completing an advanced degree in order to to be the best instructor for her students and staff. She can always be found advocating for her students and fellow teachers, working to provide them with the needs to be successful. People often ask: "does she ever go home?"

Whether in school or at home, Ms. Hornsby is constantly working to make sure that the needs of her students and teachers are met every day. The tasks she completes everyday may seem small to some, but without her completing those tasks, many lives would be totally different.That's why she's a LifeChanger in her community!

Lisa is an amazing individual. I’ve known her all of my life and she has always been an inspiration to me. Your committee could look far and wide for a better candidate but they would be hard pressed to find one.

Seeing all these wonderful comments about “Mrs. Hornsby” just confirms what I have known my whole life!! As her daughter, I see firsthand how hard she works and how selfless she is. One day I hope to be half the Mama, friend, sister, wife, leader, and woman that she is. I could think of no one more deserving for #LCOY.

Love the positive and loving role model she is to the students and especially my granddaughter! Making her feel safe in Pre-K at 4 years old means everything to our family.

The statement above couldn't describe Mrs.Hornsby any better. Always smiling and ready to assist in any area that's needed, whether its coaching the cheerleaders, teaching in the classroom, directing traffic in the mornings and now the gratitude that is shown as being assistant principal. Mrs.Hornsby certainly has my vote!

Lisa is the most selfless, caring, and devoted person I know. I have watched her care for her Reeltown students, co-workers and community members for many years. However, her devotion to others started many, many years ago. When our parents divorced over 30 years ago, Lisa stepped up to the plate and become so much more than a big sister to me. She always made sure I was taken care of whether it was clothes for school, help with homework or making sure I had a warm meal on the table. Even when she moved away for college, she always made sure I had everything I needed. That loving, caring nature continued when she had a family of her own. Lisa always puts others first and will be the first to tell anyone she isn't special for doing what she does every day. Having witnessed her passion for others firsthand, I am here to tell you she is very special to all who know her. I certainly would not be where I am today without her in my life.

Mrs. Hornsby is a wonderful asset to our school system and community. My children had the privilege of having her as a teacher, and now that I am employed as a teacher at Reeltown Elementary, I now have the privilege of working with her. She was an outstanding teacher and great role model for her students. She also does an oustanding job as an assistant principal. She makes sure our needs as teachers are met and that we are taken care of. She also does the same for the students. She goes above and beyond for her job!

This young woman is so deserving of this nomination. She not only is an awesome school administrator but so active in serving others in her church, community and numerous school related functions outside her assigned duties. She is a voice of reason and her sweet smile and spirit radiates to other.

Such a precious giving person. She exemplifies what a teacher should be because she genuinely cares so much for everyone.
