TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL JADA KIDD OF HILLCREST HIGH SCHOOL IN GREENVILLE COUNTY, AND TO CONGRATULATE HER FOR BEING SELECTED AS THE SOUTH CAROLINA HIGH SCHOOL ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL OF THE YEAR.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are pleased to learn that Jada Kidd has been named South Carolina High School Assistant Principal of the Year by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators, an educational advocacy and professional alliance based in Columbia; and
Whereas, a native of Mobile, Alabama, Ms. Kidd earned a bachelor's in criminal justice from Auburn University and enrolled in the University of Alabama Law School with a goal of becoming a prosecutor; and
Whereas, after working as a juvenile officer, she realized that she wanted to work with young people to enable them to make life choices that would prevent them from getting into trouble with the law, so she left law school and reenrolled in Auburn where she earned a master's in education; and
Whereas, Ms. Kidd began her teaching career in 1994 at Stone Elementary, now Stone Academy, in Greenville County, and she served as a middle school English teacher and program coordinator before becoming an assistant principal; and
Whereas, as assistant principal at Wade Hampton High School for five years, she ran the freshman academy where she instituted an on-going female mentoring program called Diamonds to develop positive self-images in girls while helping them to reach personal and academic goals; and
Whereas, she earned a degree as an educational specialist in administration and supervision from Clemson University in 2005, and now in her eighteenth year as an educator, she serves as the assistant principal in charge of curriculum and instruction at Hillcrest High School, skillfully assisting teachers to match programs with student needs and to personalize education; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives appreciate the sacrificial work that educators in the Palmetto State provide to our most prized resource: our children, and are grateful for the outstanding contributions that Jada Kidd has made in educating those children. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor Assistant Principal Jada Kidd of Hillcrest High School in Greenville County, and congratulate her for being selected as the South Carolina High School Assistant Principal of the Year.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Jada Kidd.
