Debbie Guidry and Tony Salard were honored at this month’s meeting of the school board. They were named the outstanding employees of the month for September and October.
Board’s insurance company presents the award. Two awards were presented this month because no award was presented in October due to a scheduling conflict.
Tony Salard was honored as the October Employee of the Month. Mike Peter, Principal of Red River Junior High, nominated her. Peter said, “Mrs. Salard is one of the best team players a school could ever wish for. She is usually the first face our car riders see every morning. You never see her without her smile and a great big ‘Good Morning!’ She knows all the students by name.” Salard is also the teacher of the month for November at the Junior High.
High School Principal J C Dickey nominated Debbie Guidry as the school employee for November. Dickey’s nomination statement said, “Mrs. Guidry has been teaching 40 plus years and she shows up to work every day with the energy like it’s her first. She was handed a new curriculum in August and she started teaching without hesitation.” Dickey added, “She is one of the first teachers to arrive and the last to go home. She is always planning and looking out for what’s best for her students.”
The two ladies were presented plaques, had their pictures taken, and were recognized by the school board members for their hard work and devotion to the students.
