Deputy Edgar Bennett

Avalon Middle School

This nominee comes to work each day with a smile on his face, ready to tackle the day. He spends his mornings at the car line, greeting students and parents. During class change, he is visible in the hallways and never misses an opportunity to be wherever the largest group of students are. His office door is always open to students, parents, staff and the school community. He has worked to really build positive relationships with students and parents through new programs and initiatives regarding safety and mental wellness. He is personable, approachable, funny and stern when he needs to be. He has a servant's hearts and always puts the needs of others above his own. Our school could not ask for a better nominee for this honor.
