Summerville High School’s own Mrs. Meyer has been nominated for the Extra Yard for Teachers program by her former student and Gamecocks player, Zack Bailey.

Meyer taught Bailey English during his freshman year in 2012. Meyer has taught many students over her career, but she has made a big impact on Zack Bailey’s life in particular. Although Bailey graduated in 2015, he still remembers all the advice she taught him.

“Just the personality that she has … and always wanting to help no matter what,” makes her worthy of the nomination, Bailey said.

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) together with the College Football Playoffs (CFP) Foundation started the program to honor teachers who have impacted player’s lives. Because of the nomination, SHS will receive a $10,000 grant to support academics.

Zack Bailey’s story for the “Extra Yard for Teachers” will be broadcasted on the SEC Network during the college football season, along with stories from other players.

“I taught Zack as a freshman, and he and I still stay in touch,” Mrs. Meyer said.

Upon being nominated, Mrs. Meyer said that she was “honored that he picked me,” but said she kept quiet because she feels as though the rest of the teachers “all do the same job,” and “work hard.”

“She does a tremendous job working with kids, and as far as me, I wasn’t the greatest kid coming in and she stuck with me and showed me the path,” Bailey said.

Now, she still teaches English, directs prom committee, and is the LED for the Miss Green Wave Pageant.
