Bethany Haizlett Narajka
Last week's Top 5 Callout might have been a bit bold. We asked you to share your stylish school picture-day snapshots (or the school photos you'd rather your mom keep tucked away in photo albums).  Only two brave members of Team DPS stepped up to the challenge and shared their school picture-da y photos. A big shout-out to  Bethany Haizlett Narajka at Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy and  Diana Pott in the Occupational and Physical Therapy department. You're both giveaway winners -- but we're the real winners because you shared!

Integrity

" Our Media Relations team -- Will Jones, Alex Renteria, Jessie Smiley, Ben McKee and Alexis Gentry -- exemplifies the value of Integrity each and every day. Not only is a huge part of their role and responsibility ensuring we are carefully and truthfully sharing our story with the Denver community, but these five human beings are committed to supporting and keeping their promises to their colleagues. They carefully balance competing demands, they take time to listen to concerns, they advise and they praise. 

No matter the time of day, no matter if you are calling to share a celebration or to prepare for sharing bad news, the Media Relations Team is dedicated to ensuring that they support every member of Team DPS in navigating situations that might be scary or challenging to get back as quickly as possible to what matters most to them, that we are successfully serving our students. "
