This year, nine Nevada County school districts and Nevada County Superintendent of Schools each chose a Classified School Employee of the Year.

Nevada Union’s Karrie Misley, Deer Creek’s Debbie Sturgill and Clear Creek’s Robert “Bob” DeHart were named county-wide employees of the year in their respective categories. As a result, Nevada County is allowed to send them to the state level to be considered as a California State Classified Employee of the Year.

Winners this year came from four categories: Office and Technical; Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance; Maintenance, Operations and Facilities; and Child Nutrition.

Earning kudos in the Office and Technical category along with Misley were Magnolia Intermediate’s Vivian McKnight, Williams Ranch School’s Lauri Diel and Claudia Aguirre from Bitney Prep High School Charter. For Para-Educator and Instructional Assistance were Sturgill, Chicago Park School’s Maria Garcia, Margaret G. Scotten’s Brian Dell and Dorothy Stock of Union Hill Elementary.

DeHart was the winner in Maintenance, Operations and Facilities while Twin Ridges Elementary’s Debbie Gomez earned the honor in Child Nutrition.

According to a release from County Superintendent of Schools Holly Hermansen and school district superintendents, these people represent the contributions of classified school employees who support the education of California’s public school students in preschool through 12th grade. Each person selected goes above and beyond the call of duty; many are life-long learners in order to better serve the school population.
