Macedonia Elementary School Media Specialist Jennifer Rice has been named to Georgia’s Top 10 Media Specialists in the State list.

A Cherokee County School District media specialist has earned a spot on Georgia’s Top 10 Media Specialists in the State list for the second consecutive year!

Macedonia Elementary School Media Specialist Jennifer Rice on Thursday was honored by the Georgia Library Media Association with recognition on the list.  Last school year, Woodstock MS Media Specialist Wendy Cope received this honor.

Ms. Rice is CCSD’s 2016 Media Specialist of the Year and in June was named the Regional Media Specialist of the Year for North Central Georgia by the Georgia Library Media Association and Georgia Association of Instructional Technology.

A graduate of Georgia College & State University, where she earned bachelor’s, master’s and specialist degrees in education, Ms. Rice began her career as a classroom teacher before following her true calling to serve as a media specialist.  In addition to her traditional media specialist responsibilities, she also organizes the school’s reading bowl team, spelling bee and student news team.  Ms. Rice last school year was named to the Georgia Children’s Picturebook Award Committee for a three-year appointment.
