Each year, District One schools select a Support Staff Employee of the Year at each school and also at the District One by their faculty and staff members. Support Staff Employees of the Year must meet the following selection criteria: professionalism, dedication to their profession, ability to work well with their peers, a team worker and someone who possesses a positive attitude.

“District One Schools has embraced two phrases that encompass what we strive for: ‘student-centered’ and ‘Becoming Our Best.’ We feel that these words should be the guide words that set the standard for our school district and everyone affiliated with it: the students, the faculty and staff in our schools and administrative office and our supporters in the school community. In an effort to recognize and encourage professionalism and the accomplishments of our support staff in Spartanburg School District One, it is my pleasure to recognize the 2010-2011 Support Staff Employees of the Year. This is just a small way for us to say thank you to those employees for all that they do for our students to encourage their success and to help our district meet the goal of being student centered,” said District One Superintendent Dr. Ron Garner.

The 2010-2011 Support Staff Employees of the Year were honored by Superintendent, Dr. Ron Garner and District Administrators at a recognition dinner held at Landrum High School and also by the Board of Trustees at the February 2010 Board of Trustees Meeting at the District One Administrative Office.
