“Pulling Up a Chair” for Ten Years

This month, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of beloved math/science teacher Nick Linscott as a staff member at Cherokee Creek Boys School.

CCBS Math/Science Teacher Nick Linscott

Nick is our second-most senior staff member, just a few months behind our Operations Director, Phil Fairbrother.

He has earned a regional reputation as the Master of Lego League. Under Nick’s leadership, our boys continue to place well in regional competitions, which punches their tickets to the State competition. After placing regionally in third place this year, his team will travel to Columbia, S.C. on February 20th. It is impressive to know that Nick has won the “Best Coach Award” twice over the years… and it’s even more impressive after learning that the award has only been given out two times!

Nick Linscott listens to storiesNick started his career at CCBS as flex staff and was asked to “fill in” for an absent teacher one day. His skills as an experiential, hands-on wizard were evident when he started a project to measure and map out a creek running through campus – entwining his river and water skills with his biology degree and natural math expertise.

Nick Linscott receives his chairNick is well known for “pulling up a chair” to have lunch with the boys at the end of the picnic tables. So, during our anniversary lunch celebration for Nick, after staff and students told stories of their favorite Mr. Linscott memories and encounters, Nick was presented with his very own custom made chair that contained an engraved plaque of appreciation.

Nick Linscott is one of the reasons why Cherokee Creek Boys School is known around the country as “the little school with a BIG heart”.
