The Kannapolis Board of Education was proud to recognize outstanding representatives from Fred L. Wilson Elementary School during its October board meeting. We are very grateful to the Mary Beth Burgess State Farm Insurance Agency for donating $100 to the Fred L. Wilson library in appreciation of the honorees.


  • Bryce Morgan:  Bryce Morgan is a 4th grader at Fred L. Wilson. He works extremely hard and always models positive behavior. He also is a good friend to everyone. You will always catch Bryce doing the right thing. He says he loves math because he gets to do lots of fun stuff like Dreambox. In his spare time he loves to play with beyblades, video games, football, and basketball. He says his favorite things about Fred L. Wilson are the teachers. When Bryce grows up he says he would like to become a manager or a chef. He also says he would personally like to thank the teacher who nominated him to receive this award.


  • Kelsie Webster:  Kelsie is a fifth grader who has been part of Fred L. Wilson since kindergarten. Her favorite subject is science because it allows her to do hands-on activities. Kelsie is part of Girl Scouts and Girls on the Run, and in her spare time, she enjoys roller skating. Kelsie says the teachers at Fred L. Wilson are her favorite thing about the school. She also says that when she grows up, she wants to become a nurse. Her principal, Dr. Campbell, says, “I have known Kelsie since preschool. Watching her grow up has been one of my greatest joys during my career. She has come a long way since preschool. She works hard in the classroom, wants to be at school every day, and strives to make positive choices. I could not be more proud of Kelsie.”


  • Elizabeth Belush:  Elizabeth Belush has been a parent at Fred L Wilson for two years. She is a part of the school’s PTA and volunteers regularly in classrooms. She will do whatever is asked of her and does it to perfection. She spent months—including every week during the summer—painting more than 50 flags on ceiling tiles. She wanted to help globalize the school environment as Fred L. Wilson transformed into a global studies magnet school. Kindergarten Teacher, Fran Patterson, said “Mrs. Belush has gone over and beyond the expectations as a volunteer. While her girls were in kindergarten, she volunteered in the classroom every Thursday and helped students review sight words and practice reading sight-word books. Above all she is dependable.” Ms. Belush is a tremendous asset to Fred L. Wilson, and everyone at the school appreciates her support and contributions.


  • Barbara Bynum:  Barbara Bynum has been a substitute in Kannapolis City Schools for 11 years. She is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she received a bachelor's degree in recreation with a minor in sociology from Southern University. Mrs. Bynum does an excellent job implementing lessons, following substitute plans, and managing classroom behavior. Teachers say they know their students will be in great hands when Mrs. Bynum is substituting in their classrooms.


  • Sydney Yow:  Sydney Yow is a 3rd grade Instructional Assistant and Bus Driver at Fred L. Wilson, where she has worked for twelve years. Mrs. Yow has a bachelor’s degree in Childhood Development. She works with small groups of students in math and reading and always meets them where they are. She also builds up their confidence to help them succeed in making growth. Teachers at Fred L. Wilson say Mrs. Yow does anything and everything to help students and teachers with whatever they need.


  • Callie Brust:  Callie Brust is a 4th grade teacher at Fred L. Wilson. She began her teaching career just two years ago, and she is already making her mark. Callie’s team member, Logan Hartman, says “Callie is kind, witty, loving, supportive, creative, and dedicated. Day in and day out, Callie comes to work and gives 100%. Callie has gone above and beyond this year for her students and team.” Callie is in a new grade level this year, but she is already working with the school’s English as Second Language teacher to launch teaching techniques that help all students succeed. Callie is a graduate of UNC-Charlotte and is a wonderful part of Fred L. Wilson Elementary.
