The latest Downtown Leadership Club meeting on March 18 focused on one of the district's values – character. RPS 205 employees from the Administration Building, Operations Support Center and Sterling Holley heard a candid and personal message from Jefferson High School alum and State Representative Maurice West on how he built character.
The meeting closed with acknowledging the hard work of some employees who live the district values. They were recognized with a shoutout from their peers and received a candy bar for living one or more of our organizational values: character, collaboration, communication and continuous improvement:
-Paula Crossno-Mellissa Douglas-Daniel Holder-Sara Kurpius-Mitchell Luebke-Janice O'Brien-Ellen Schubert-Yashekia Simpkins-Susan Uram
