Clough Pike Elementary School third grade teacher Cathy Cumbow has been awarded an “Eddy Award” by Sylvan Learning Center.

She and Crahan formed the club to create a welcoming committee for new students who come to Clough Pike.

Members of the club welcome new students on their first day, and are encouraged to invite them to play at recess, sit together at lunch and even write new students letters of welcome.

New students are also presented with gifts, such as Clough Pike Elementary pencils. As part of the award, Cumbow received $100, which will be used to buy supplies and gifts for the Young Ambassador's Club.
