Mrs. Barb Cogdill has been teaching in Branson for 28 years, and chances are, if you were a student in Branson, you know Mrs. Cogdill by her kind and caring attitude. Mrs. Cogdill ensures each student reaches success in her classroom, and it shows when students say she is the reason they enjoy math.

Mrs. Cogdill not only inspires her students, but those who work around her. A colleague who nominated her, wrote, "Mrs. Codgill is everything we hope to have in teachers: she is kind, empathetic, fair, knowledgeable, and hard-working. She has dedicated her life to serving the students of Branson, and we are lucky to have her."

Dr. Swofford, along with her family, colleagues, and former students, surprised Mrs. Cogdill this morning to recognize her as our November Pirate Proud honoree.
