Lincoln School Secretary Kristina Hicks is the November recipient of the EVSC’s Cause for Applause award. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.
Hicks was nominated by a coworker at Lincoln who wrote about the great things Hicks does for the school, its students and its staff.
According to her nominator, Hicks continually goes above and beyond her job responsibilities as a school secretary to be involved in what students are doing at the school. For example, Hicks often purchases costumes, makeup and more for student performances at Lincoln. She also took it upon herself to make sure student performers received free t-shirts for their school performance.
“She was so excited to deliver the shirts to our students,” said her nominator, “which was a big surprise to them since having a show-shirt is a big deal to student performers.”
The nominator goes on to explain the huge impact Hicks has on the school each and every day. “Her dedication to this school and our students is inspiring. Her enthusiasm when our students achieve something, great or small, fills their little hearts with pride. I can say with confidence that Kristina is not only a friend – she is a cheerleader, a silent partner, a disciplinarian, a nurse, a hugger, and the first smile I see to start my school day.”
