(Harrison, Oh.) – The Cincinnati Christian University awarded Melissa Glindmeyer, the Harrison High School Psychologist, the “Top 10 Greater Cincinnati Teachers of Excellence” award.

Local principals and assistant principals were asked to nominate a teacher. The teachers nominated were judged on three criteria: Excellence in the classroom, excellence in their school or their community. In their nomination letter, Principal Davis Baker and Assistant Principal Corinne Hayes described Glindmeyer as the “ultimate bridge builder.”

Glindmeyer has been a professional educator for 31 years, which includes her 11 years as the Harrison High School psychologist. Glindmeyer coordinates multiple funds for needy students. Some funds are used to provide needy students with school supplies while others are used as a part of the Holiday Giving Program ensuring that families who normally would not be able to enjoy holidays have something to unwrap.

Glindmeyer also helps organize the Harrison High School “Cinderella” and “CinderFella” Projects that makes or donates dresses and other formal attire for students who may not be able to afford the cost of formal wear.

Principal Baker said Glindmeyer “is a wealth of knowledge and know-how for and so deeply committed to the success of every student. She is extremely positive in her approach and is the eternal optimist as an advocate for all students.”

Baker and Hayes commend Glindmeyer for the miles, money, and time she has given to benefit the students and families of the community. ​
