Board honors April Employees of the Month
Employees from Kino Junior High, Westwood High School, and Mendoza and Red Mountain Ranch elementary schools were recognized for their service at the April 26 board meeting.
April Employees of the Month were recognized by superintendency and school board members for their leadership, commitment and dedication to their students. Their service to Mesa Public Schools is forever appreciated.
Certified and classified employees are nominated for the award by co-workers and endorsed by administrators. Selected employees are honored during the second board meeting of the month from September to April. The board meetings are usually standing room only and full of energy as the employees accept their honors.
