Top Employee Also a County Finalist
School district technology technician Long Le, selected as classified employee of the year, is also one of six finalists for a similar award by the county’s Education Department.
The award pays tribute to the efforts of non-teaching school employees.
Supt. Sherine Smith said “Long provides technical help and assistance to each of us with patience and understanding.”
“Unfailingly helpful, courteous, and amiable, he is able to deal with complexity and to make the complex appear simple,” added Nancy Hubbell, assistant superintendent of instructional services.
Le will be honored with the finalists May 3 and recognized May 8 at the local school board meeting.
