End of Year District Meeting – CPS 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year Revealed!
June 10, 2021
We were thrilled to finally have the opportunity to have our staff all together again for our end of year district meeting. This is something we were not able to do last year due to COVID and it was great to be able to recognize our teachers and staff in-person for their service.
Cabot Public Schools Teacher of the Year
One of our district’s outstanding teachers was honored with a special recognition. Jessica Saum was named the 2020-2021 Cabot Public Schools Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Saum was also named Elementary Teacher of the Year and Stagecoach Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Saum is now eligible to compete for Arkansas Teacher of the Year!
Also, congratulations to Cynnamon Brown (CMSS Teacher of the Year) for being named the Mid-Level Teacher of the Year and Rusty Hart (CHS Teacher of the Year) for being recognized as the Secondary Teacher of the Year.
The top three Cabot teachers were presented with a banner sponsored by the Cabot Panther Foundation, a plaque sponsored by Centennial Bank, and a cash prize sponsored by the Cabot Classroom Teachers Association.

Hundreds of teachers and staff were also recognized for their many years of service to the Cabot School District.
Those retiring were honored as well. Staff who retired last year were also invited back to be recognized. Congratulations to all our dedicated employees.
A special thank you to our Cabot High School spirit squads and our theatre students for a great performance of Disney’s High School Musical, “We’re all in this together,” which was extremely fitting this school year.
Our administrators, teachers, staff, and students have done a remarkable job this year dealing with all the challenges. We certainly have experienced a year like no other.
Thank you for trusting us, thank you for your commitment, thank you for your dedication, and thank you for loving our kids. Thank you for all you do and all you did this year!
We are so proud of you. Never doubt you make a difference!
