In the Spotlight

Officer Craig Golden is the School Resource Officer at Elkin Elementary School.


There were some wonderful comments made about Officer Golden.  Here are a few of those: 


“Officer Golden is amazing with the kids at EES.  He has worked hard to build excellent relationships with students and staff.  He is firm, fair and friendly!  He is always willing to lend a hand and step up to help out.  We are so fortunate to have someone who cares so much for the kids, works well under pressure and continually looks for better ways to serve our students and keep them safe.”


“Officer Golden has been such an asset to our school family.  He works hard and makes it seem easy.  He builds relationships with students but can be stern when needed.  Our students know they can trust Officer Golden to keep them safe and support them when they need it.  We are so thankful for Officer Golden!”


“Officer Golden is a huge asset to our staff at Elkin Elementary School!  We are extremely thankful to have him when we need additional assistance de-escalating some of our students.  He is the perfect example of someone with just enough firmness but plenty of love!.”


As Employee of the Month, Officer Golden received a movie ticket to Starmount Crossing Cinema V, Certificate, a goody pack from Horace Mann and balloons.  During the month of September, his photo will hang at the district’s central office, at Elkin Elementary and on the website.  Elkin City Schools thanks you for your excellent service to students, staff and community.
