Staff of the Month

Deb GDeborah Goughenour, who mans the front desk in the Main Office, is our Staff Member of the Month.  She recently helped Mr. Degnan (not Dugan) in that annual pursuit of getting back fully completed Federal Impact Aid cards.  While this is one of the most important funding mechanisms for our school division, getting completed Federal Cards returned for every single student in the school is one of the most challenging tasks anyone could take on.  Mrs. G is relentless in this effort and will make every effort humanly possible to commandeer this elusive prize.  She does an amazing job and our school system is able to recoup thousands of federal dollars because of her tenacity.  Thank you, Ms. G!
