Shields Middle School has been named the SouthShore Chamber of Commerce School of the Month.
Members of the Chamber and sponsors greeted students and staff on the school’s patio with cheers, a banner and balloons to celebrate the special recognition.
“Our schools do such amazing work throughout the campus and student body, and it’s very important to congratulate their accomplishments and inspire other educators to do the same,” said Carrie Elwell, SouthShore Chamber of Commerce Educational Partnership Committee Chair.
The Chamber selected Shields to honor staff and students for their many successes and accomplishments:
The Chamber presented the school with a commendation certificate from the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, a framed certificate and the biggest surprise: a check for $1,000 – made possible through SouthShore Chamber of Commerce sponsorships.
“We are honored to receive this recognition as the SouthShore Chamber of Commerce School of the Month. Thank you for the donation and for seeing the greatest in our school,” said Shields Middle School Principal Tia Brown.
“Our schools are such an integral part of what makes our community such a special place to live and work,” Elwell said. “As the Educational Representatives of such a strong chamber, we believe it is important to share the accomplishments of our schools with our active and engaged members, and the community at large.”
The SouthShore Chamber of Commerce said there are many examples why Shields Middle School deserved to be selected as the School of the Month:
