Shaker Schools Employees Honored at Annual Service Tea

May 24, 2018—Congratulations to the Shaker Heights Schools employees who were honored today at the annual District Service Awards. The ceremony was presented by The Board of Education, The Shaker Heights Teachers’ Association (SHTA) and the PTO.

“The success of Shaker Schools lies in its people and your example is a model of service that inspires us all,” said Dr. Stephen M. Wilkins, who begins his position as Interim Superintendent of Schools in July. 

Awards were given to employees who have given the District 25 and 15 years of service, who are newly tenured and who are retiring this year. The SHTA also presented the Distinguished Service Award to Woodbury Fifth Grade Teacher Chante Thomas for her ongoing commitment and contributions to the SHTA.

“This is a great representation of the depth and breadth and commitment on the part of the staff to the District,” said SHTA president Dr. John Morris. “And it’s a great celebration on the part of the staff to see this kind of turnout for people who are beginning their careers and ending their careers in Shaker.”
