He goes out of his way, everyday to do this,” the nomination read. “The day is totally different when he isn’t here and not in a good way. Everyday he greets you with a smile and something nice to say. The world and Liberty is a better place with him here!”

“Anne and her husband, Carpio, are a dynamic duo and their dedication to these sports is unmatched,” the nomination read. “They host extra soccer practice for the Liberty girls during the winter to enhance the program without expecting pay. They also have organized a spring travel league for the girls to practice in and have been doing this for years.”

“Cristina is always helpful, kind and willing to contact parents for the health office to translate for us. She is always greeting you with a smile,” the nomination read. “She is a lovely human, with a beautiful heart, and her willingness to help, of all places, in the health office just shows that she’s not just coming to work to do her job, but that she’s simply a good person who cares about our students, and those around her!”

Each month, staff members nominate others they believe are going above and beyond, be it a single act of excellence or kindness or a continuous work ethic.

We congratulate these employees on their awards.
