Three Marshalltown Community School District employees were honored with Employee of the Quarter awards for the third quarter of the school year recently including Connie Reinert, Bob Rush and Elaine Johnson.
Reinert is in her 17th year as administrative assistant in the transportation department. She was nominated for the award by bus driver Dave Adland.
“Connie is always there when we need her to assist in all communications regarding bus routes, scheduling, student placements and other administrative tasks,” Adland wrote in his nomination form. “Connie has a caring personality and her ability to interact with parents, students and staff is one of her greatest assets. All of us at the bus barn are lucky to have her in the position that she’s in.”
Rush is in his second year in food service at Fisher Elementary School. He was nominated for the award by food service supervisor Nancy Mayer and Director of Food Service Lynn Large.
“Bob is an exceptional employee,” Large wrote in her nomination form. “He is dedicated to the students at Fisher Elementary. Bob goes above and beyond in helping students have a positive experience. He is organized, kind and demonstrates effective communication and team skills.”
Johnson is a counselor at Lenihan Intermediate School, where she has worked since 2006. She has worked in the district since 1990.
She was nominated for the award by three Lenihan staff members including Renae DeVenney, Joan Furjanic and Elizabeth Luttrell.
“Elaine is one of the most dedicated employees; she goes above and beyond to meet with our students and to help them,” DeVenney said. “She is very compassionate toward the students and builds a trust with them. She is also very highly respected among her peers.”
