A Step Above

Jun 01, 2019

The Fort Osage District has many top notch support staff.  Starting with the 2015-2016 school year, the District started a new tradition by honoring an outstanding support person that exemplifies the qualities of a caring spirit toward others and an excellent work ethic.  Yearly we will recognize a person who will be one that goes above and beyond their duties to help others when not asked, who steps in to help their coworkers and shows compassion in both their words and actions.  

The District was pleased to honor five finalists at the District Steak Fry on April 29.  The winner of the A Step Above Support Staff Employee of the Year Award was Julie Ann Dunlap, Custodian in the Facilities Department.

When asked what she liked best about working at Fort Osage she said, “I love my co-workers.  This is a great place to make friends and work with pride for yourself and for the school.”

Congratulations to Julie Ann Dunlap and our five other finalists:

Jenny Skaggs District Technology Office
April Smith Buckner Elementary
Pam Miller Elm Grove Elementary
Mandy Vasselle Food Service
Nancy Winslow Fire Prairie Upper Elementary
