Plybon Named Administrative Synchrony Financial Difference Maker of the Month
Job title: Elementary principal
How long at district: Entering my 19th year in Massillon and taught fourth grade in Orrville for 10 years prior.
Family: Single, brothers JD (Linda) and Mike (Wendy) Plybon, nieces Hillary, Hannah, and Allison, and nephews Austin and Carter and a cat named Midnight.
What is the most rewarding part of your position? I grew up in education with my father being a high school teacher and football coach while my mother was an elementary librarian. I enjoy the excitement of all the students when they are learning. I witness a lot of growth in all our students from their first day of kindergarten to their last day of third grade. It is great talking to former students and seeing how much they have grown and accomplished.

Whittier Named One of Top Schools in Nation
Funny thing about mountain peaks, it takes a lot of work to get there.
But once you’re there – once you’ve put all you have into climbing up the steep, rocky mountainside – you reach the pinnacle and see the view.
That’s enough to take your breath away.
For Whittier Elementary students, Tuesday was all about taking in the view and celebrating all that has helped them earn the designation as one of America’s best schools.
Whittier is one of only 304 schools nationwide this school year to earn Blue Ribbon designation, an award given by the U.S. Department of Education that recognizes continued growth and academic achievements
among all students regardless of race, background, ability or income level.
In other words, fourth-grader Eemoni Hattery said, “it means our school rocks.”
Tuesday afternoon, the Whittier students and staff joined former students, staff members, community members, district officials and dignitaries to celebrate the view from the top of the proverbial mountain during a special assembly in which the students proudly participated. They introduced each of the speakers, shared inspirational poems and joined together in singing their special Blue Ribbon Song: “We are a Blue Ribbon School.”
