Marcia Sanford
Assistant Cafeteria Manager
Holley Navarre Intermediate

Letter of Nomination
I would like to nominate her for School Related Employee of the Year for the following reasons. She is a very dedicated individual, a true professional. Not only is she the boss but also a team player. She is always eager to please the children, parents and anyone who comes through our door. She does not hesitate to jump right in and give 100%. She is the type of individual that you can go to when you are having a problem or just want to talk to about any kind of difficulties that may be occurring. Our lunchroom runs very smoothly with a great working atmosphere with her as our team leader. She takes a lot of pride in making sure that everything is as close to perfection as humanly possible. Having her as a boss makes you look forward to going to work knowing that she will be there to support you all the way. We hope she is our manager for a long time and keep up the good work.

Administrator's Letter of Recommendation
It’s with a great deal of pleasure that I recommend our nominee for the School Related Employee of the Year for Holley-Navarre Intermediate School.  She has been with HNIS for the 2002-2003 school year.   It became immediately evident that HNIS had found the Cafeteria Manager that exactly fit our style.   When I asked the teachers and her colleagues for three words that described her, I was flooded with wonderful, warm, cheerful, great initiative, wants the best for the students, goes the extra mile, energetic, punctual, gives 150 percent.  But most of all from her own staff, “She makes you look forward to coming to work knowing that she will support you all the way.  We hope she is our manager for a long time.”             

All of these attributes are demonstrated every day in a hundred different ways.  She is consistently an outstanding employee and manager.  I have enjoyed working with her and I also hope she remains with HNIS for a good long time.  As I said, she fits HNIS’ style; we are honored to have her on our team!
