Carson honored as Unsung Hero

Poplar Bluff Middle School teacher Karmen Carson received the 2017 Unsung Heroes award of the Missouri State Teachers Association on Thursday, Nov. 9, in Columbia. 

Nominated by field service coordinators, the award acknowledged about 30 members who made a “substantive yet unrecognized contribution” to the organization’s mission: to advocate for and empower public educators so they can teach, according to the award letter. 

“You’ve quietly served without any expectation of recognition,” wrote Bruce Moe, MSTA executive director. “But we’ve noticed.” 

An educator of nearly 20 years, Carson has served as president of the Poplar Bluff chapter of MSTA since 2009. The MSTA is an organization made up of more than 47,000 educators statewide. 

Dr. Amy Jackson, R-I assistant superintendent of personnel, congratulated Carson, stating: “I am proud of your dedication and the work you do that is unnoticed by some, but not all!”
