  • EOMLiberty High School is very pleased to announce Miss Crystal DeLong as the Employee of the Month for May 2015. Miss DeLong has been teaching for seventeen years, eleven of which have been with Bedford County Public Schools. Miss DeLong taught overseas for six years and loves sharing her experiences with her students. Currently Miss DeLong teaches Advanced Placement Government and World History II. Nominated by the Social Studies department, they made the following comments for her nomination: “The Social Studies Department feels that Miss DeLong's many contributions to Liberty High School are worthy of recognition as Employee of the Month. She has steadfastly maintained  the School Website, worked on special projects for the administration, and can always be counted on as a volunteer for extracurricular school activities.Throughout the year she has also offered tremendous support to both her students and her colleagues as a mentor and friend; while maintaining very high levels of professionalism and creativity in teaching within her own classroom. For the reasons here stated and so many other intangible ones; the Social Studies Department feels that, Miss DeLong reflects the best qualities of a teacher and that the recognition of her contributions to Liberty High School, its staff, and its students is long overdue.” Miss DeLong received a bundle of gifts provided by several generous businesses in Bedford including a lovely arrangement of flowers from Frederic’s Flowers, an oil change from Berglund of Bedford, a free lunch from Liberty Station, a free meal and drink each week for a month from McDonald’s in Bedford, a free meal from Wendy’s and a free sub from Bedford Subway.
