Support Staff: Karon Brown
"She is such a hard worker and team player. During the first few weeks of school, we always have to cook the food for the Child Care. She knew we were crazy busy just trying to figure out everything with COVID and went out of her way to get it all ready each day. On days when she had meetings or other obligations, she apologized that she wouldn't be here to do our lunch. She is one of the absolute sweetest people I know. She not only goes over and beyond for us (the Child Care) but everyone else in this building. Karon is always positive with the kids and staff.
I think she is very deserving to be recognized as our first ES3 winner! I can't thank her enough for all that she does for our program, this campus, and the district. We are very lucky to have her."
