Music that Describes Annette

Annette McCraw was nominated anonymously.

"I am nominating a game changer, Ms. McCraw, because she is always working to expose the children in her school to hands-on, positive activities," explains her nominator.

Ms. McCraw was chosen as the Clayton County Certified Person of the Year in 2020. She was a finalist for the same award in 2019. She is an outstanding member of the counseling department. Over the past several years, she has worked to make sure students understand the dangers of drugs and alcohol. She works hard to make the correlation of why it's important for students to never give up or drop out. Through her school counseling program, she speaks to the children about the dangers of drugs and the correlations of how they can impact you in life and at work.

She has gone further by participating in the Governor's Red Ribbon Challenge. In the past, Kemp Primary School placed placed third in the challenge, but last year, one of its students won the Challenge. Yet again, Ms. McCraw has submitted entires and looks forward to a wonderful outcome in the state competition. Most folks overlook the school because the students are young. What they don't realize is that primary schools are the core of learning. Students take the lessons they learn in primary school and keep them for a lifetime.

Ms. McCraw does not miss a beat. She believes in her students and wants the best for them. She truly believes there's nothing they can't accomplish.
