Legends Event 2017
We honored Judi Akers and Cari Meyers on January 11th, 2017 with a wonderful celebration. Both ladies have had a tremendous impact on the education community! Thank you to all who attended!!”
Judi Akers has taught at Parkway Elementary for 30+ years. Besides teaching, Judi has also supervised the Student Council for years, planted trees around Parkway on Arbor days and organized Master Gardeners to work with the students and create the Parkway garden. Judi says that Teaching has always been her joy and passion. Each day is a new adventure. Her students, past and present, have truly made a difference in her life. Judi cannot imagine doing anything else as a career. She feels truly thankful and blessed to have spent so many years working with so many amazing children. Judi received 12 nominations for this award which demonstrates the impact that she had at Parkway.
Cari Meyers served for 12 years as the President of the CHS Bantam Boosters. While President, Cari has revamped the Boosters with her energy and drive. Cari began the Booster’s Auction many years ago as a way to raise money for athletics and activities so the kids would not have to continually fundraise. Th e auction continues to raise tens of thousands of dollars every year to help support CHS sports and activities. The Auction is no small feat and takes many volunteers under her leadership to make it successful. Cari’s youngest child graduated last year, and she agreed to continue as Booster’s president one more year to help with the transition to a new president. That is dedication to CHS and to Clarkston students!
