NASHVILLE, Tenn. — All-American Pest Control has selected Brandi Nunnery, a literacy coach at Crieve Hall Elementary School, as its 2021 Hometown Hero Award recipient. Three runners-up will also be recognized in this year’s award program after numerous great submissions.
The locally owned pest control company honored Nunnery today for Teacher Appreciation Week with an award presentation in front of her students and colleagues. Nunnery was rewarded with a certificate for 10 years of free pest control—ant, spider, tick and termite protection, mosquito reduction and yard treatment services.
Dr. Nate Miley, Crieve Hall Elementary School's principal, nominated Nunnery for her selflessness in the way she pivoted during the pandemic. When COVID-19 shut down schools in March 2020, she created a virtual classroom on Zoom that taught writing and enabled students to share their written stories and news articles with one another. The virtual class reached students at Crieve Hall Elementary School, students from other schools in the Metro Nashville area and out-of-state students.
“Brandi is the perfect example of a local hero, and we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving to receive our third annual Hometown Hero Award and 10 years of complimentary pest control service,” said All-American Pest Control President Erin Richardson. “As a mom to school-aged children, it means so much to me to see Brandi continue to give of herself and serve the students and teachers in our community. She represents all the teachers who found creative and new ways to help keep children inspired to keep learning during such difficult times.”
“We just purchased a new home and are overjoyed knowing it will be protected from pests for the next decade,” Nunnery said. “While I may have received this amazing honor, my students and fellow colleagues deserve a special shout out as well for how they continued their dedication to education during the pandemic.”
All-American Pest Control accepted nominations for anyone residing in the following counties: Davidson, Williamson, Maury, Dickson, Rutherford, Wilson, Montgomery and Sumner.
