Congratulations to the newest Everyday Hero!

Everyday Heroes Logo with the words: Celebrating OSD Employees

Everyday 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
Sam Logan, Data Systems Developer, Technology/Knox 111 Administrative Center

I would like to express how thankful I am for Sam Logan in the development team.  He has continually had to listen to me ask for better ways for staff to use the ETRS system.  I am NOT a tech savvy person so explaining what I need or want and trying to interpret my meaning, he has been patient and kind and magically makes it work.  He just improved the allocated hours for staff to now see what is remaining when in ETRS.  This will be SUCH a helpful tool for staff.  Thank you so much for all you do for the district!  It is GREATLY appreciated!
