ESOL Aide and Paraprofessional named Good News Support Heroes

In March, the School District of Manatee County Office of Communications launched a recognition program to support employees who make an exceptional contribution and inspire positive teamwork.


Dozens of nominations were received from K-12 schools and District worksites across Manatee County.


The April recipients were surprised by Communications Specialist Melissa Parker.


Our Good News Support Heroes each received a certificate and a $50 VISA gift card, provided by the Manatee Education Foundation.
