Mark Neighbors, floor covering specialist, is the recipient of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation’s September Cause for Applause award. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.
Over the summer, EVSC’s supportive services staff spent hours getting schools and classrooms ready for the new school year and according to Rick Cameron, EVSC chief of staff, Neighbors was an integral part of that. According to Cameron, Neighbors took on a special project at Thompkins Middle School to singlehandedly redo the entire tile floor, a daunting task especially with a challenging pattern. “Mark never wavered in his good humor and determination to do a great job,” wrote Cameron in his nomination letter. “I have always known Mark to be a hard worker who cares deeply about the quality of his work and the people he works with,” he wrote.
Anyone can nominate an employee of the EVSC for the award. Deadline for nominations is the third Friday of each month. To nominate an EVSC employee, go to www.evscschools.com and click on About Us and see Cause for Applause under Community. Paper forms are available at the schools for those without access to the Internet.
