Hamlet Elementary assistant principal named as A LifeChanger of Year

Kami Collins, an assistant principal at Hamlet Elementary, was named a LifeChanger of the Year by National Life Group recently in a surprise ceremony at her school.

LifeChanger of the Year is an annual program funded and run by National Life Group and its foundation that recognizes and rewards K-12 educators and school employees from around the country. Collins was named one of 18 winners out of 850 nominations considered for the award.

Collins was recognized as a positive role model to her students as a behavior and academic mentor. As a winner, she will receive a $3,000 prize with $1,500 to her as an individual donation and $1,500 donated to a nonprofit of her choice.

“I understand how it feels to live paycheck to paycheck, but that is a luxury for some kids. I want my students to see the value of education,” Collins said. “As often as I can, I share my story, hopes, and dreams so my students know they, too, can achieve greatness with their education.”
