Thank you for being devoted to our students

Posted on: May 24, 2016

At the May 23 Board of Education meeting, Brenda Dennis, Sherry Enderle and Jerry Ward were given the extraordinary honor of being named a 'Friend of Children' by the Secondary PTA.

 

Secondary PTA President Dan Deitsch said the award goes to people who "put a lot of effort and a lot of soul" into supporting young people. For parent Brenda Dennis, it's meant hours of volunteer work for the schools, including putting her excellent seamstress skills to work for the band and orchestra. For Sherry Enderle, it's leading the Athletic Boosters and providing extraordinary support to athletes and non-athletes alike at the Secondary Campus. For Jerry Ward, it's meant leaving the comfort of retirement to -- as Dan Deitsch said -- "get up early in the morning in the rain and snow to make sure the kids are safe" in his role as a district crossing guard.

Brenda, Sherry and Jerry, thank you for nurturing, respecting, protecting, listening to, guiding and loving our students.
