"To the Ware County board of education, superintendent, members and visitors, it is my absolute pleasure to recommend Andrea Scotton as the Golden Achievement winner for the month of August 2017. Mrs. Scotton is truly one of Ruskin's most valuable assets. She is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working. In addition to those impressive qualities, she is an outstanding leader and role model for our faculty, staff, and students.

It is the force that drives her to 'Rise Up' and make a difference in their lives. Along with her undeniable love and compassion for our students, she is a true team player with a positive attitude that invokes the best in all of us at Ruskin. Without a doubt, Mrs. Andrea Scotton is honored by her peers and is most deserving of this most esteemed award."
