The “Be Golden” award is a new faculty and staff recognition program at the high school.

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 custodian Mr. Randy Gorecki.

He chose to give the award to technology department assistant Mr. Tim Walk.

Mr. Gorecki’s Quote:

Tim is a dedicated and loyal co-worker and friend!  He is quick to help out when asked.  We also like the many stories that he tells us in the breakroom.  He helps out with the after-school programs, which takes up a lot of his spare time with sound and lighting.  He keeps the shows going!!!  This week, the Be Golden award goes to Tim Walk!
