The Marshalltown Community School District held a staff recognition event at the Marshalltown High School/Community Auditorium on June 5. Employee of the Quarter award winners for the fourth quarter were recognized as were service award recipients.
Employee of the Quarter award winners for the fourth quarter included Mary Abbe from Woodbury Elementary School, Laurie Rink from Marshalltown High School and Jeni Sloan from Hoglan Elementary School.
Abbe is retiring this month after 43 years at Woodbury. She started in 1974 as a paraeducator and has been serving since 1988 as the Woodbury secretary.
Rink is a reading and language arts teacher at MHS. She has worked at MHS since 2011 and spearheaded the highly-successful Pier program at MHS to help students recoup credits.
Sloan is teacher librarian at Hoglan, where she has worked since 2009. She will be changing roles to be a fourth grade teacher at Hoglan this fall.
Also recognized at the event were service award recipients for those serving for 20, 25, 30 and 35 years in the school district (pictured below).
