As our worship November 8 gathered around the love of God and His blessings on our school, we were also blessed to share in the recognition that our church body has given to Mrs. Nancy Cagann, our Day School Director. Nancy has been awarded the Early Childhood Director of the Year Award by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod’s Rocky Mountain District! 2015-16 marks Nancy’s twentieth year directing our school, which currently serves children ages two through Kindergarten. Nancy has been our “Teacher of the Year” here at Zion for twenty years; but this larger award is both well-deserved and celebrated by all of this family at Zion. We thank God for Nancy’s mission and ministry to our neighborhood, our city, and all of us!
During worship, Nancy was given her certificate and Pastor said a special prayer for her and the Day School children. Mrs. Eileen Olmsted also spoke some nice words in honor of Nancy. Following worship, the whole congregation joined together for a meal in celebration of all our Day School blessings. It was especially neat to have some of Nancy’s former students, as well as her current ones with their families, all welcomed in celebration.
Miss Nancy was showered with flowers and hugs. Special thanks to Mary S. for making TWO beautiful, delicious cakes!
