Calvert Elementary Educational Support Person of the Year: Rodney Gray

Calvert County Public Schools via Facebook

From Principal Joe Sampson: Rodney Gray is the type of staff member that you wish you could clone and put in several different places in the building. If he chose, he would also make an amazing counselor or classroom teacher! There’s a sense of purpose in everything he does, whether it’s greeting students by name, cutting grass, or playing joyful music in the morning.

Mr. Gray has been in the county for 27 years, with the past 15 being at Calvert Elementary. That alone, should tell you about the quality of his work because a building as “vintage” as CES looks and feels quite different inside because of Mr. Gray’s presence.

A student shared these words about Mr. Gray, “I’ve never seen anyone love his job more than Mr. Gray. He is one of the kindest and most hardworking people in the school and still has room for us kids!”

Congratulations, Mr. Gray!
