Kathy Sherman
Oriole Beach Elementary

Letter of Recommendation
In the three years our nominee has been the bookkeeper at our school, she has organized all of us!!!!  Any question you have, she can answer. On the rare occasion when she doesn’t know the answer right away, she always knows who to call to get the answer. She has trained other bookkeepers and is always answering their questions as well. This willingness to help is evident at school and in the community. She jumps right in and does what needs to be done. She fills in at the Clinic, she is active in her church, she is the PTO Treasurer, and the list goes on and on and on. Not only is she always ready to help, but she always has a smile on her face!  She has the respect of students, coworkers, parents, and the community. She is very deserving of this honor and I am glad to recommend her for it.

Administrator's Letter of Recommendation
Our nominee embodies everything any school could want in a School Related Employee. She is a good, kind, sweet, loving person who sings in her church choir and freely gives of her time to those who need it. She is also the most organized, knowledgeable, and efficient bookkeeper I have ever seen. These attributes make her invaluable to our school because not only can she keep our finances in order while keeping everyone straight, she can do it in a way that helps us promote the schoolwide harmony that we are used to.

Above and beyond are mere words, but she actually lives them. This year, she was elected as Treasurer of the Parent Teacher Organization and helps control that large flow of money as well.  I have known her seven years and in that time her quality of work and quality of character have never faltered. At one point, she and I worked together in helping to build a new school and the policies and procedures she helped create for her area are still in place today.

She has given this county many years of valuable service and I am proud to give her my heartiest recommendation for this honor.
