The Employee of the Month for Red River Schools is Carol Welling. She works at the school board office and Welling was nominated by the central office staff.
The nomination statement said, “Welling is someone whom we all depend on for payroll and insurance and so much more. She does a thousand jobs behind the scene so that we can all get paid on time, enjoy our retirement years, and have money flowing in our bank account from grants and reimbursements.”
Welling was told, “We appreciate all of your hard work, your attention to detail, and your willingness to work through so many obstacles.”
Welling was at the School Board meeting on Monday; however she did not know in advance of the honor. When she was announced as the Employee of the Month, she was caught completely by surprise.
