Congratulations to Delpha Corwin, high school head secretary, and Jenna Betts, high school English Language Arts teacher, for being selected as the second trimester Neah-Kah-Nie School District Treasure Award recipients!
Dr. Buckmaster wrote these inspiring words in her nomination of Delpha for this award:
It is hard to put all that Delpha does into words because she impacts so many people in different ways each day. I am so appreciative of her knowledge, persistence and integrity- she is the glue that holds the HS together. Delpha is the go-to person for all synergy questions and support, she helps students with transcripts, teachers with paperwork, keeps the finances in order, mentors new staff members, and helps me get the information I need on a daily basis to take care of business. Delpha supports the entire district by arranging sub coverage, many times miraculously engineering coverage with the most limited availability.
Delpha is a fixer, a trouble shooter, a long range planner, organizer, supporter, counselor, and a comedian
Delpha has a heart of gold but she is also tough as nails, she helps maintain high standards of accountability and accuracy. They say everyone is replaceable, I disagree where Delpha is concerned.
She is an amazing resource for the district and we love her!
Stevie Jackson acknowledged Jenna Betts with these kind words:
I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude to be afforded the opportunity to work with Jenna. I appreciate her hard work in the classroom and the extra time she commits outside of the classroom to student-athletes in her roles of volleyball, basketball, and track coach. She is always in the building preparing for the day as I arrive, even after a late night home from long-distance athletic events. I believe all high school staff appreciate her work ethic and dedication to the success of all NKN students. In my modest calculations, I estimate she puts in 400+ hours per year coaching in addition to her teaching time. You rock Jenna!
With admiration and respect,
Delpha and Jenna will be recognized at a staff meeting and student assembly and will receive special plaques and gift certificates. Congratulations Delpha and Jenna!
