Paris Junior High School assistant principal Amy Adkins was selected as Texoma’s Golden Apple Award recipient by KTEN television and Texoma Chevy Dealers.
Adkins has 19 years of experience in education, all at Paris Independent School District. For almost two decades, Mrs. Adkins has dedicated herself to educating and nurturing our children. Her passion for teaching and her unwavering commitment have left an enduring mark on our community.
Adkins received a $750 check during a presentation Tuesday at the Paris Junior High School pep rally. Presenting the award was Paris Chevrolet’s Kelli McDonald.
“Amy is not just an educator; she’s an inspiration,” McDonald said. “She doesn’t just talk about being great; she demonstrates it through her actions and the countless lives she’s touched. Her incredible dedication goes beyond the classroom, where she’s opened her home to three children, alongside her own three, providing a loving environment.”
McDonald also said that Adkins is a community leader, actively involved in youth initiatives, her church, the Boys and Girls Club, and advocating for young people. Amy’s exceptional dedication has earned her the TASSP Assistant Principal of the Year, twice.
