School Employee of the Month

The December Employee of the Month at Red River Schools works at the central office.  He is Finance Director David Jones.  His award was announced at the School Board meeting Monday evening.  Jones was taken by surprise and almost spilled his cup of coffee.

Superintendent Alison Hughes nominated Jones for the award.  Her nomination statement read, “If the parish has a need, Mr. Jones finds a way to make it happen, while still maintaining a healthy, balanced budget.”

Hughes used terms such as “he has the respect and appreciation of all who work with him, even if he tells them ‘no’” and “he never says a cross word to any of us” in describing why Jones deserves to be the Employee of the Month.

The award is presented by Taylor and Sons Insurance.  It is handed out at the monthly school board meeting.
