Congrats to our Employees of the Year/Quarter!
Posted on 09/13/2018
Congratulations to our 2017-18 Employees of the Year: Emily Johnson (classified, Victor Valley High) and Angela Mayo (certificated, Silverado High). 

Johnson and Mayo were honored at board meeting over the summer along with the Employees of the Fourth Quarter: Peggy White (classified, Maintenance) and Zebulon Porter (certificated, Adelanto High).

Mayo has been a special education teacher at Silverado since 2005. Her nominators said she “is a prime example of service above self.”

“(Mayo) works tirelessly to improve processes,” a nominator wrote. “She is simply fantastic.”

Johnson worked at VVHS as an administrative assistant for activities, athletics and 11th-grade discipline.

“She does the job of three people,” said one nominator. “She does this with a smile on her face daily and never complains. She loves her job and it shows.”

Porter, an Adelanto High teacher, “always has a positive attitude,” a nominator said.

“He volunteers, pitches in, and does whatever is needed to support the school,” nominators said.

White is an office assistant in the Maintenance and Operations department. 

“She does a wonderful job in all areas,” nominators said of White. “She has a great attitude and is a team player. … She has an awesome work ethic and is just an overall good person.”

The Employee of the Quarter/Employee of the Year program is now underway for the 2018-19 school year. District employees may nominate their fellow staff members for the awards each quarter. Any staff member that receives more than one nomination is eligible for Employee of the Year.

Any VVUHSD employee may nominate a peer that they feel goes above and beyond to serve students and fellow staff members. Employees may visit https://goo.gl/forms/Qz6St04NlJlJ7qmu2 to make a nomination.

The deadline to submit nominations for the First Quarter is Oct. 3 at 4 p.m.
