October 2013 Employees of the Month.

"Recently the TIS department hired new hardware technicians. Shon Smith & Dwayne McFedders took all of these new members underneath their wings, with no hesitation, and showed all of them the ropes. They both showed, and continue to show, true professionalism while conducting this training. They have never waivered from their commitment or dedication to the district as a whole. They have proven that their main priorities are the student and the teachers. Before these members were hired, Shon and Dwayne (along with two others) handled the entire work load with no complaints. Their loyalty to USD 500 is second to none"
-- Sincerely, Joshua Littlejohn TIS Tech

"Rick Malone is an exceptional young teacher. His enthusiasm is contagious; he seems to be challenged to make a difference in the lives of his students. Rick is a dedicated and hard working Math Teacher, willing to take on challenges. He as our PLC leader in math has always been a dependable, motivated young man that has the drive to be successful at whatever he attempts. He is the 20/20 Leadership sponsor, working with the school's junior leadership group. He also is one of the coaches of the district champion Math Relays team. As devoted as he is to his career in preparation for class and grading, Rick still finds time to coach football and track."
-- Sincerely, Steve Howard, Teacher
