Snyder Employee of Year Snyder

She’s knows most of the children’s names. She greets the kids each day with a smile and a word of encouragement, and makes sure they all get a nutritious breakfast and lunch.

These are just a few of the reasons why Hillary Snyder, a cashier and cook at Campbellsburg Elementary School, was named the School Nutrition Association (SNA) 2019 Employee of the Year for the state of Kentucky. The Employee of the Year award recognizes non-managerial school nutrition employees for the contributions they have made throughout their school nutrition career.

Having been notified just days ago that she won, Snyder is still coming to terms with the magnitude of the recognition.

Powell to Present Powell

When Dwayne Powell returned to the classroom after a short break from teaching, things had changed.

“Everything was on Google,” Powell, a teacher at Henry County High School, said. “Everything I did had to be submitted on Google. So I was kind of forced to learn it.”

But Powell chose to embrace the new technology, has transitioned to a near paperless classroom, is pursuing Google certification and has been chosen to provide a presentation on Google Sites at two different conferences over the summer.
