Congratulations to Jay Shideler Elementary School student Bryson Philipi for receiving the Shining Star Award at last night's Board of Education meeting. Bryson was selected for "exemplifying a student who naturally and without need for recognition, helps, encourages, and supports others," said Principal Sandra Cromwell. Bryson is always willing to do what it takes to be a better person and student. He is a natural leader who "empowers others with encouraging words and supportive actions."
Jay Shideler staff members Melinda Havay and Amy Schneider were also recognized during the meeting. Each received an All-Star Award from the Board of Education.
Melinda Havay is a specialized program paraprofessional who "works tirelessly to ensure that every student receives the attention and care they deserve," said Cromwell. "Her hard work, compassion, and commitment does not go unnoticed and her dedication to the students in her program is truly commendable."
Amy Schneider, an instructional facilitator at the school, was recognized for her growth mindset and desire to continuously improve teaching practices. "She is committed to coaching and developing others, knowing the true measure of our success lies in how well we lift up those around us," said Cromwell. "She makes our teams stronger, more cohesive, and more successful."
Please join us in congratulating and thanking these dedicated and deserving award recipients!
