Congratulations to the September 2017 Employees of the Month


Two outstanding employees were honored this week by the Kansas City, Kansas Board of Education as Employees of the Month for September. Congratulations to Ricky Minor, head custodian at Stony Point South Elementary and Janese Brown, school nurse at Quindaro Elementary. The following are excerpts from their nominations:

Ricky Minor

“Mr. Minor is a valuable asset to our school. He demonstrates a positive demeanor each and every day. He arrives early every morning and does his rounds to make sure our school is safe, clean and ready to receive the staff and students. He greets everyone with a smile and warm welcome. There is never a job too big for Mr. Minor. He makes sure every task that is asked of him is finished on time and is done well. He has been a one-man show since we lost our night custodian at the semester break last year. It amazes all of us how tirelessly he works to do the job of two people day-after-day and keep our building in such good shape. Thank you, Mr. Minor, for all you do for us at Stony Point South.”


Janese Brown

“Nurse Brown takes excellent care of our students and staff, ensuring that every person who walks into her office leaves feeling nurtured, important and well cared for. She goes to great lengths to educate parents, caregivers and staff members about the needs of their students and brings in many resources to help families receive appropriate healthcare. Thanks to Nurse Brown we have an eye doctor who provides vision screenings and glasses to students, free of charge. Additionally, we have a dental program that comes right to our school. Nurse Brown also provides extra hygiene supplies like deodorant, lotion, underwear, socks, snacks and more, that she buys out of the goodness of her heart. Janese Brown is the ultimate team player. She builds effective relationships with students, families and staff. She identifies where help is needed and jumps right in without any complaints. She is a helper, an advocate, a friend, a trusted adult with a heart of gold and is, without a doubt, one of the greatest assets to not only Quindaro Elementary, but to KCKPS as a whole.”
