Megan Canny of Syms Middle School is named 2022 Cox Education Hero
In a surprise Zoom presentation on Thursday, May 19, 2022, Megan Canny, social studies teacher at Syms Middle School, was presented with the 2022 Cox Education Hero award and a $1,000 grant for classroom supplies. She was one of 10 teachers selected from 130 nominations from across the state.
In the presentation, Angelique LeBlanc, Cox public relations manager, said, “Ms. Canny, we were floored by your nomination.”
Canny’s nomination letter said, “She doesn’t brag or tell people the extra miles she goes for her students. As much as teaching academics is important, helping students survive their environment and become successful people is her main goal.”
The letter also said that Canny not only teaches school but also does so while writing curriculum, helping coordinate the after-school program, working on her doctorate degree and dissertation, and planning a wedding.
Congratulations on winning this outstanding achievement!
