She works with teachers to define areas that need growth and shares her work frequently so classroom teachers know where students are making progress. I know that I really appreciate her hard work and dedication and feel that her efforts should be valued and shared!"

Executive Assistant Lynd Jeter
The Bravo! Award for the week of April 30th went to Executive Assistant Lynd Jeter. She was nominated by Grants Fiscal Coordinator Carla Hotter.
 
In her nomination, she wrote, "I would like to nominate Lynd Jeter for The Bravo Award. Lynd has been with the district for approximately 30 years and has probably seen more than most of us ever will. She has brought a tremendously warm and welcoming atmosphere to our lobby area of the Administration Building. Her kindness and immediate attention to all that enter is nothing short of a compliment to the entire School District. She is always friendly, professional and polite, and jumps at the chance to make customers’ lives easier in any way she can, and always with a smile on her face.

She keeps the lobby area decorated as the seasons or holidays come around, when one is not on the horizon, there is an uplifting display that inspires, and puts smiles on faces,  not only the administration staff but all who enter as well. I truly believe that she is a wonderful asset to the Administration Building. Thank you, Lynd, for everything you bring to the Administration Building."
 
Nice work, Lynd!
