Charlene Cress
Custodian
Holley Navarre Primary

The main reason Charlene was selected is that for several years she has exceeded our expectations and those of her supervisors.  She thinks of things to do that others do not; she leads her team to receive the best inspections in the county; she takes ownership of our building; and she involves herself in a personal way with everyone here.

 Some examples of her "above and beyond" contributions follow:
During outbreaks of illness, she voluntarily disinfects desktops and fixtures daily until the absentee rate goes down.
She worked tirelessly and alone immediately after Hurricane Ivan to dry the building and protect it from further damage.
She watches the hallways, interacts with children, and reports anything she sees that might cause injury.
She helps needy children and families.  She has even assisted her own crew members during difficult times.

Charlene is loved and appreciated by the children, staff, and families at our school.  Her loyalty and dedication are unsurpassed.  She is a friend and an inspiration to us all.
