Mrs. Alyson Cochran – Support Staff of the Month for October 2021

Director of Operations, Mr. Keith Isaacs, is thrilled to announce that Mrs. Alyson Cochran, Secretary at Mount Carmel Elementary School, has been selected as October’s “Support Staff of the Month.” 

Mrs. Cochran is in her fifth year of working at the Franklin County Community School District. Alyson is currently attending Western Governors University to obtain her Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education. 

Alyson was nominated for this honor by two colleagues. When asked why Mrs. Cochran should be considered for this recognition, they responded, “Aly is thorough in every aspect of her job, pays so much attention to detail, and coordinates all things at Mount Carmel! She goes above and beyond her duties as a secretary. Aly greets every child in a cheerful demeanor, gives everyone the benefit of the doubt, and keeps her fellow co-workers afloat during stressful times. She is the face of Mount Carmel School in so many ways! She keeps us all glued together and always does it with a smile on her face.” 

When not at school, Alyson is spending time with her daughters, nieces, and nephew. She also enjoys reading and taking vacations (especially to Disney World) in her free time. 

When asked what the best part of her job is, Aly responded, “Sitting in the front office all day gives me a unique opportunity to work closely with parents, students, and staff members. I truly believe we have some of the best educators and staff members right here in our school corporation! I have loved getting to know each and every student and making connections with them and their families. I consider it an honor to work at Mount Carmel School and feel very blessed to be here.” 

The purpose of the “Support Staff of the Month” program is to recognize outstanding Franklin County Community School Corporation Support Staff who demonstrate dedication to his/her job, school, students, and community.
