The two newest “Fred Award” winners are perfect examples of employees who go the extra mile to help students and coworkers in District 50.
Jesse Henley, the head custodian at Hidden Lake High School and community liaison Myrian Nowosad were honored at the recent Board of Education meeting.
Hidden Lake Principal, James Steward praised Henley in his nomination letter:
“Jesse routinely takes care of activities in the building above and beyond his job expectations. He is very approachable and truly has the best interests of the students and adults in the community in mind.”
Myrian was nominated by principals Claudette Trujillo, Justin Davis and Shannon Willy as a tireless advocate for children and parents. Her nomination letter reads in part:
“Parents are constantly bidding for her attention and support because she demonstrates authentic care and concern for each of them. They love Myrian.”
The “Fred Award” was created as way to honor Education Support Professionals across the district. It’s named after a mailman profiled in the book “The Fred Factor” who consistently did more than his job description required.
