School district honors 22 teachers, staff members

The Quincy School Board on Tuesday honored 22 employees who were voted by their peers as standouts in the  school district.

Each year the school district recognizes both classified and certificated employees who exemplify the best the district has to offer, according to information from the school district.

The honorees were chosen by their peers at the building or department where they work. The principals and department heads then introduced them at the meeting before a crowd of family and friends who had come to honor the employees.

“The school board directors are very happy to hear of the accomplishments that the Quincy School District’s top staff have achieved,” said Alex Ybarra, board president. “The individuals recognized tonight are just a few of the wonderful staff QSD employs.  There are others that could have been acknowledged, but during this school year these folks stood out from the rest.”


An annual tradition at the school district, the above QSD employees were chosen by their peers as people who exemplify the best the school district has to offer.

From the 22 honorees, three were chosen as the District Employees of the Year. They were Russ Elliot, dean of students at Quincy Junior High School; Travis Sill, a counselor at QHJS; and  Debbie Henne, student registrar for the district. The trio will be honored at a future regional banquet sponsored by the North Central Educational Service District.

The other 19 employees honored were: Meghan Steele, a teacher at High Tech High School; Mary Garza, an administrative assistant at High Tech High; Eric Nelson, a teacher at George Elementary School; Camilla Baty, a para-educator at George; Liz Kondo, a teacher at Mountain View Elementary School; Ashlee Cedergreen, a para-educator at Mountain View; Sara Hausken, a teacher at Pioneer Elementary School; Shana Moloso, a librarian at Pioneer; Lisa Martinez, a teacher at Monument Elementary School; Debra Winkler, a librarian at Monument; Corina Kling, a custodian at QJHS; Michele Blakely and Ross Kondo, teachers at Quincy High School; Kris Miller, an administrative assistant at QHS; Jon Wright, special education coordinator for the district; Josh Fuller, a mechanic with the transportation department; Sherrie Holt, head cook; Carol Leibelt, a custodian; and Chris Molitor, technology coordinator for the district.
