The Hoover school system today named the district’s lead nurse, Vicki Holden, as the 2017-18 Hoover City Schools Employee of the Year. Holden has been a nurse for 36 years, serving as a critical care or surgical nurse at Princeton Baptist Medical Center and Brookwood Medical Center for 15 years before joining Hoover City Schools in 1997. She spent her first two years in the system as the nurse at South Shades Crest Elementary School and then was transferred to Hoover High School in 1999.
Students in Hoover City Schools are substantially exceeding state averages on college readiness tests, Superintendent Kathy Murphy told the Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce today. Instead of giving her typical chamber speech on the state of the school system, Murphy gave the 160 or so people in attendance at the Hoover Country Club a more brief snapshot of how the district’s students are performing.
The Hoover school board on Tuesday night approved spending $5.4 million to build a new band suite for Hoover High School. The 34,000-square-foot facility will be an addition onto the end of the current high school, in a gravel area near Buccaneer Stadium, said Tracy Hobson, the operations coordinator for the school system.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
