Congratulations to Mercedes Tohala, our November 2018 UCPS Employee of the Month!
During the Nov. 8 Board of Education meeting, Walter Bickett Education Center Site Administrator Ken Roess praised Mercedes for being a trusted resource for many of the school's parents and for also contributing to a positive work environment.
"Mercedes is a problem solver and goes above and beyond the call of duty without complaint and with great enthusiasm. Helping to record ConnectEd messages in Spanish, covering classes so teachers can attend professional development, providing translation services for open house meetings, fairs, and other events are just a few of the services that she provides to support our school," he said. "Beyond all these things, she has a cheerful disposition that uplifts everyone around her. Mercedes is a truly exceptional employee and we are proud to have her as part of our team."
