Kudos to this week’s Everyday Hero!

Everyday Heroes Logo with the words: Celebrating OSD EmployeesEveryday Heroes is a regular feature in this staff blog. Remember to submit names of employees districtwide who have done something deserving of encouragement and praise. Give a shout out to one of your colleagues at your school or support building and watch for it to appear in an upcoming Everyday Heroes blog post.

Here is our newest honoree:

Everyday Hero
Bridget Culley, Career Center Secretary, Capital High School

2018 OSD College & Career Fair: Bridget went above and beyond in the planning and coordination of this year’s Career & College Fair. She has always gone out of her way to get the job done and present our district in a professional and coordinated manner. She took the time to find requested vendors that students sought out, and procured an amazing turnout of vendors, schools, career opportunities and post-high school pathways. She is indispensable and resourceful, and supportive of student goals and plans for post-high school planning. I admire her ability to maintain the volume of student requests and seems to plan a major district event without even breaking a sweat. She is awesome, and I appreciate her so much!

How to nominate an Everyday Hero

  • Email the Communications and Community Relations Department (communications@osd.wednet.edu) a few sentences, and no more than 200 words, about why the person deserves recognition. It’s easiest to write as if speaking directly to the colleague, such as “Thank you for helping with…” or “I really appreciated when you…”
  • Write Everyday Heroes in the subject heading of the email.
  • Include your first and last name as the person submitting the comments.
  • Include the first and last name of the OSD employee you are recognizing.
  • Include the job title and work location (school or department) of the person you are recognizing.

All submissions will be posted in this blog on a weekly basis and archived each week.

We can’t wait to hear about all of our Everyday Heroes, because we know that every day our teachers, bus drivers, child nutrition staff, custodial employees, paraeducators, school and district office staff, and others are doing amazing work on behalf of students.
