Gems of Appreciation

Cathy Rhoads, Food Service Department

"The Food Service Department has a real gem in Cathy Rhoads. She always takes the initiative to make sure the kitchen runs smoothly. She has been a valuable member of our team for over 30 years. Her commitment to the Food Service Department and dedication to our students is outstanding."

Dee Nivault, Bertram Elementary

"Instructional Partner Dee Nivault is a true gem. She is bright and happy in the mornings and is a wonderful greeter for our students. She volunteers to help in many areas and looks for things that need to be done and then gets them done! On top of being a shining IP, she makes great hot sauce!"

Donna Horrigan, Facilities & Operations Department

"Facilities and Operations would like to recognize our January Gem of Appreciation recipient, our department secretary, Donna Horrigan. Donna is the heart of our team and the glue that keeps us together (and in line when need be!) Donna goes above and beyond for everyone, so please join me in congratulating her on this honor!"

Patty Neiman, Quest High School

"Patty Neiman receives many compliments from Quest High School students saying that she goes the extra mile in helping them understand science concepts. Ms. Neiman is very patient and thorough when helping students and always willing to pitch in and help where needed. We are truly blessed to have Patty as part of the Quest High School family. Thank you for your dedication to our students here at Quest!"

Virginia Garcia, Food Service Department

"Virginia Garcia has been a valued employee of the Food Service Department for over 10 years. The students love her! They shine when they see her for breakfast and lunch. We are excited to have her as part of our team!"

Tommy Schubert, R. J. Richey Elementary

"Tommy is such a hard working and loyal employee. He exemplifies the district vision of Spirit, Pride and Honor! The students and staff at RJ Richey reap the rewards of his hard work every day, and our campus would not be the same without Tommy as a part of our family!"

Valarie Ullmann, Burnet Middle School

"Valarie Ullmann is a HUGE part of why our campus has a 'homey and family' feel to it. She keeps us all together and makes everyone feel special in some way. She does this not because she is asked to or gets something in return, but because she wants to. Even as the year gets busy and the stress of getting her kids ready for the state mandated test takes its toll, she continues to make us feel appreciated."

Karen Melton, Burnet High School

"January's BHS Gem of Appreciation is Karen Melton! Mrs. Melton tirelessly serves BHS students. She is always willing to help with any situation and is a champion for our students. Please congratulate Mrs. Melton; BHS is thankful and appreciative of her service!"
