HCSD leaders also announced this year’s Harrison County School District Teacher of the Year.  That honor went to LTC Clifton Canoy of D’Iberville High School.

LTC Clifton Canoy

LTC Canoy truly has a heart for his country and for the young people he teaches and inspires every day. LTC Canoy has served as the JROTC senior Army instructor at DHS for the last 20 years. He has led his cadets in achieving numerous awards and accolades, including the prestigious Right of Line for the past two years through MDE. Many of his cadets have pursued military careers, and several cadets have been accepted into prestigious programs, including the U.S Military Academy at West Point and U.S Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.

“It was overwhelming, because I listened to the names of all the teachers who were called and I know good and well they’re better teachers than I could ever hope to be. So words escape me,” said Canoy.

Through his role with the JROTC program and as Student Council sponsor, LTC Canoy knows how to connect with young people, and he motivates them to achieve their goals. He strongly believes in passing his love of country to future generations.

“I think it’s the desire I have to make personal connections with each of the students that I teach. Not only am I the JROTC senior instructor, I’m also the student council advisor, so I have various ways of impacting the lives of young people.  Bottom line is, I teach them to be the leaders of the future and I take great pride in all the ones that have come through and the impact they’re going to have on our society in the future,” said Canoy.

LTC Canoy is now in the running for Mississippi Teacher of the Year. He is also a LifeChanger of the Year nominee for 2020. 

 Vivian Bosworth

Congratulations also go out to the 2019-20 Harrison Country School District Administrator of the Year, Mrs. Vivian Bosworth!  Mrs. Bosworth has served in leadership roles at several high-performing schools in the district. She is currently principal of the A-rated Woolmarket Elementary. Previously, she was principal of another A-rated school – Pineville Elementary. At the time, Pineville was ranked #2 in Mississippi and was nominated for the National Blue Ribbon School Award, which the school received last fall.

I was very shocked and surprised, but very honored.  I can’t think of a better district to work in than Harrison County School District and I’m just humbled and honored to be recognized for my efforts. Thank you!” said Bosworth. Of course, it would not be possible without the hard work and effort of the students and teachers and parents to support those students and I want to thank them for that.”

Mrs. Bosworth has also served as assistant principal of North Gulfport Middle School, D’Iberville Middle School, and North Woolmarket Elementary/Middle School. Earlier in her career, she taught math and science at North Gulfport and North Woolmarket.

What is also remarkable about Mrs. Bosworth is that her love for children actually extends beyond classroom walls. Mrs. Bosworth and her husband have taken care of hundreds of foster children since 2007. They have adopted three children and are hoping to adopt three more children.

We are extremely proud and blessed to have both educators in Harrison County School District. We would also like to thank them for their commitment to excellence and their dedication to the students and staff of the Harrison County School District.
