Cyndy Caughron : Business Manager

Cyndy Caughron

Business Manager

Cyndy Caughron and her husband, Dr. Sam Caughron, have been with CWS since 1998 when their daughter entered the Early Childhood program. Their daughter Anna graduated the 8th grade at CWS in 2010 and Cyndy is now serving as Business Manager at the school. What Cyndy enjoys most about her work here is hearing the children play outside her office door and her daily interactions with families, faculty, and other members of the Admin team. Some folks are surprised at all the silent letters in her last name. Caughron is pronounced like a core in an apple “Core-In”.
