Employees Making a Difference

2019 Employees Making A Difference Program

“Employees Making a Difference” Program Recognizes Outstanding Classified School Employees     

This year, the Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE) and the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region VII partnered to honor outstanding classified (non-supervisory) education employees in Stanislaus County. Called “Employees Making a Difference,” school districts throughout the county selected their own honorees and forwarded nominations to SCOE.  Twenty-two outstanding classified staff were honored at a special reception on Monday, January 14, at the Martin G. Petersen Event Center, and six honorees were selected to represent Stanislaus County in the California Department of Education’s statewide recognition program. The six representatives (one from each work-category) announced were: Brigid Olson, Somerset Middle School of Sylvan Union District, Child Nutrition category; Anita Theiler, Cloverland Elementary of Oakdale Unified, Para-Educator & Instructional Aide category; Vernon Wheeland, Ceres Unified School District, Maintenance/Operations category; Jeanine Sique, Waterford Unified School District, Support/Security Services category; Lorena Rodriguez-Daniel, Empire Union School of Empire Union School District, Office & Technical category; and Cheryl Galvan, Riverbank Unified School District, Transportation category.

It was also announced at the reception that Kathy King of Chatom Preschool, of Chatom Union School District, is the recipient of the third annual Jane Johnston Civility Award for exemplifying the principles of civility both at work and in her personal life. 

Special thanks to corporate sponsors: Atkinson Andelson Loya Ruud & Romo Law Firm and Mocse Credit Union
