We acquired copies of Sims' evaluations from several of the 11 years she worked at Halifax County Schools. While they are not all perfect, she did average high markings on the evaluations. Until the last one where she received the two lowest marks in every category. Sims says this last evaluation was after she went to her manager about the rat droppings.
Superintendent Merle Herndon says she cannot talk about the reason Sims was let go. But she tells us that the food with rat droppings was never served to students or faculty. Herndon admits they did find contaminated food but that was thrown away and the problem was taken care of. Still, Sims has not forgotten about what she claims happens last year.
"Do you know all day, I'll be honest with you, I prayed and I was so disgusted, I just didn't know what to do," said Sims.
Monday night Sims is scheduled in the 'citizens comments' section of the School Board meeting to request that she get money or her job back. The meeting is at 7:30, which is after the School Board's closed session.
