Superintendent Troy Ravenscroft is pleased with this program which is an opportunity for a service personnel employee to help communicate their excellence of service to the public.
He explained that like the Teacher of the Year Program, the individual named as Service Personnel of the Year will be a representative of the many outstanding employees who make our schools operate efficiently.
Service personnel categories include: Aides/paraprofessionals, bus operators/mechanics, cooks, custodians, maintenance, and secretaries.  In short, regular employees who are not counted as professional personnel.
The superintendent will establish a selection committee that will make a recommendation to the Board.  This committee will consist of past recipients of Service Personnel of the Year.  
Nominations are to be turned in to the Director of Administrative Services by 4 p.m. Friday, March 13.
The 2020 Mineral County Service Personnel of the Year will be named and recognized at the annual spring banquet of the Mineral County School Service Personnel Association and at a board meeting.
Questions concerning this service personnel recognition program should be addressed to Scott Staley, 304-788-4200, 36 Baker Place, Keyser, WV, 26726.
