SLPS October STAR Awards

Congratulations to these STAR Award recipients from the October 11th board meeting!

Maciel Marcano, Work Order Specialist, and Larry Beckham, Custodial Area Manager, nominated by Principal Brad Lehman

“We would like to recognize Larry Beckham and Maciel Marcano for their recent and ongoing support of our school community. Both Larry and Maciel have assisted our school maintenance department with daily cleaning, as a result of staffing issues. Due to their help, our teachers and staff report that our building continues to remain presentable and welcoming for our students.

Most recently, Larry was instrumental in helping hang flags in our cafeteria to recognize Hispanic Heritage month. Thank you to both Mr. Beckham and Ms. Marcano for always going above and beyond to support Southern Oaks.”

Nicole Malpass, Green Zone Router from the transportation department nominated by Principal Heather Ricksecker

“Fairlawn Elementary would like to recognize Nicole Malpass. We know transportation is extremely busy, but Nicole always takes her time to help us out and she always does it nicely. She has assisted us on many occasions, and we know we can always call her for support. Thank you, Nicole!”

Yolanda Barbary, nominated by parent Michelle Stephani  

“I would like a recognize an excellent bus driver for her patience and compassion while helping get our daughter on the bus for VPK. It has been an emotional struggle every morning, even with her older sister sitting with her. When the bus arrives, she starts crying and refuses to get on. The girls’ bus driver Miss Yolonda was so understanding and patient, never making us feel rushed even with the growing line of cars and obvious time schedule. She offered words of encouragement and allowed us to take enough time to talk to our daughter and reassure her. We feel so much more secure sending our baby on the bus with Ms. Yolonda, she deserves many thanks and praise for being such a wonderful person and bus driver!”
