‘Be Golden’ Staff Member of the Week: Mr. Ron Fedore

The “Be Golden” award is a faculty and staff recognition program at the high school. It is given to a teacher or staff that is making a difference at Tyrone.

This award is given weekly by a faculty/staff member to another faculty/staff member. Whoever receives the trophy on Friday is responsible for awarding it to someone else the following week. The only criteria are to give it to someone who has done something to make the school a better place.

“With the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiative in our school, we want to not only recognize students for being golden but staff members as well,” said Shannon Davis, the award program coordinator. “This is a way to personally thank people we work with every day, but don’t always have the chance to show them how much they are appreciated.”

Last week the award went to the social worker Mrs. Molly Stroup

She chose to give the award to the special education and emotional support teacher Mr. Ron Fedore

Mrs. Stroup’s quote:

“I nominate Ron Fedore for the BE GOLDEN AWARD:

  • Ron quietly provides one of the most essential services within the high school: Emotional Support to students who may be in a vulnerable condition.
  • He provides a safe refuge to students who experience school atmosphere as chaotic or foreboding.
  • Ron is a team player when asked to help and always says yes (accept to lunch invitations by his co workers ha ha)
  • Ron is highly effective, efficient and well liked by staff and students!”

The Eagle Eye interviewed Mr. Fedore about being this week’s award winner:
