STATE SUPERINTENDENT DR. JOHN BARGE TO VISIT PEPPERELL MIDDLE SCHOOL TO PRESENT PHILLIPS AWARD TO FAMILY OF BONNIE COOK

Written by Matt Davis on August 24, 2012. Posted in News/Weather

State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge will pay a visit to Pepperell Middle School on Wednesday, August 29th at 9 am to present the Phillips Award to the family of Bonnie Cook.  Mrs. Cook, who served as the school’s secretary for 22 years, passed away on August 25, 2011 in a tragic van fire on her way to a treatment at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center in Rome.  According to a Floyd County Schools media release, this is the second Phillips Award to be presented.  It was created to recognize school staff members who have had a tremendous impact on the education and lives of others.

Bonnie Cook was a beloved member of the Pepperell Middle staff as her time at the school spanned seven principals and 14 assistant principals over her 22 years of service.  

Pepperell Middle Principal Becky McCoy states, “Mrs. Cook’s warm smile always greeted you when you came through the school doors, and it was her voice parents and the community recognized when they called the school.”
The Phillips Award was named for Condyce Phillips, who was the cafeteria manager at Griffin Middle School in Cobb County when Superintendent Barge was a student at that school.  He credits her with helping him and countless other children to write a better story for themselves.  The award is sponsored by the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education, a non-partisan, non-profit policy and research organization whose mission it is to improve student achievement in Georgia.
