“Employees Making a Difference” Program Recognizes Outstanding Classified School Employees Each year the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) and the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region VII partner to honor outstanding classified education employees in Stanislaus County. Called “Employees Making a Difference,” school districts throughout the county select their own honorees and forward nominations to SCOE. One representative will be selected from each of the nine (9) work categories provided from the California Department of Education (CDE) to represent Stanislaus County in the statewide recognition program. In addition, the Education Foundation of Stanislaus County will present the Jane Johnston Civility Award to one of the 2021-22 district nominees who best exemplifies the principles of civility. The award is named in honor of former SCOE Assistant Superintendent Jane Johnston, who helped launch the county-wide Choose Civility Initiative in 2010 and passed away unexpectedly in April 2012. Johnston advocated for, and co-chaired, the Employees Making a Difference Program (2008–2012), and was active with the Education Foundation of Stanislaus County. The Empire Union School District (EUSD) would like to recognize and congratulate the following employees for ‘Making a Difference’ in the lives of EUSD students, families, and staff: Maria ‘Alex’ Ramos -Student Services Assistant- Stroud Elementary Sheri Singer -Principals Secretary- Capistrano Elementary Mattie King -Local Area Network Specialist- Hughes Elementary Maria Jackson -Bilingual Paraprofessional- Empire Elementary Arturo Ramirez -Paraprofessional RSP- Sipherd Elementary Jennifer Salazar -School Secretary- Glick Middle School It is so important to recognize our outstanding education employees for going above and beyond especially during these difficult times. The work our classified employees perform on a daily basis is the glue that keeps our schools running and greatly contributes to the quality of education for our students. Teachers, principals, & superintendents know that the success or failure of any school or district office depends on the competency, passion, and hard work of talented support staff. Classified staff is vital to the education system. All of the EUSD ‘Employees Making a Difference’ go the extra mile and each possesses outstanding qualities to truly make a difference. Congratulations to these well-deserving employees!
