    CONGRATULATIONS Miss Christy! Well deserved well deserved. I can only speak from my own personal interaction with her and the time and passion she put in to helping both of my sons who graduated from Tate(2011 and 2020). The care she put into helping them was above and beyond what I had expected especially from one teacher/counselor who had many more students to guide/assist in making this transition from High School to the adult world. Thank you again Mrs. Mills and Congratulations on a well deserved award.

    My kids and Mrs Mills’ kid was in the same grade and she would transfer schools when her kid graduated to a new school. So, from elementary to high school, I’ve seen her do a lot of good. She’s helped us more than she’ll ever know. All teachers and staff deserve our praise, but she stands at the top, when it comes to me and my family. God Bless you Mrs Mills..

    Mrs. Mills is the best of the best. We could not have made it through high school without her guidance. She helped us manage COVID along with many other things. This award is overdue and You have earned this plus more.

    Mrs. Mills is an excellent person and educator. You could not ask for someone who cares more about the students and their future.
