Battery Creek High School office manager Diane Grooms has been named the Beaufort County School District's 2014 "Support Person of the Year."

She received a $250 gas card from Parker's.

Grooms was one of three finalists chosen from 32 school support staff nominees. The finalists were interviewed by a team of judges from across the district. The other two finalists were Debra Bryan, a Michael C. Riley Elementary social worker, and Vicki Ratzel, a Red Cedar Elementary media assistant.

Support staff can include social workers, school nurses, bookkeepers, office managers, teacher assistants, school secretaries and technology and data specialists.
