D276 Employees of the Month

D276 February Staff Members of the Month

This year, in conjunction with local businesses, we have started a long overdue Employee Recognition Program. Staff members from each of our educational unions are nominated by their colleagues. We appreciate the eagerness of our local businesses to partner with D276 to recognize and reward our amazing staff. 

On behalf of the Board of Education and our February Sponsor of the Month, Ben Forney State Farm Insurance, Abingdon, IL, I am pleased to share that our February staff members of the Month are Terri Dickerson and Rose Guthrie-Dorvil.

Terri received numerous nominations from D276 staff, including this one: 

"Terri is a pleasure to work with and is a vital part of our title program at Hedding. She works with a variety of groups throughout the day. She also is also a great person to bounce ideas and help with problem solving."

Rose teaches 5th Grade at Hedding Grade School.

Rose received multiple nominations, including this one:

"Rose has demonstrated time and time again her commitment to her students and her colleagues. Not only does she seek to educate. She connects with kids and understands how to motivate them. She is a mentor and a role model to her peers and is well deserving of this award."

"Thank you" to Ben Forney State Farm Insurance in Abingdon, for supporting the D276 Staff Member of the Month Program.
