January Employees of the Month
 
Employee of the Month
District Employee of the Month
Maintenance Staff
The Vidor Independent School District named their entire maintenance department as their January employees of the month at Monday's Board of Trustees meeting at the VISD Administrative Annex.  Nominated by Oak Forest principal Carolyn Wedgeworth, the department is consistently thanked by VISD employees for the many things they do in the district, most of which the public doesn't realize.  Most recently, they created a unique setting for Oak Forest Elementary after Hurricane Harvey inundated the building and students and staff were split between two other campuses.
Principal Wedgeworth says, "These employees worked tirelessly to ensure Oak Forest faculty and students would have a safe and comfortable learning environment.  The men spent exhausting hours moving furniture, boxes, and school supplies. They built fence and vehicle accesses, poured concrete, moved gravel, handled key crises, put furniture together, and so much more.  It was not an easy task, but with the children's best interest at the forefront of everyone's minds these tasks were done with smiles on their faces.  Their desire was to give children stability and a place to learn that they could call their own.  Many of the children and faculty had lost so much, so to have their own classrooms was the morale boost everyone so desperately needed."  Maintenance employees are Ronnie Davis, Tami Nunez, David Barrow, Nick Beckman, Bradley Byers, Steve Courts , Tommy Gilcrease,  Greg Guidry, Jeff Jaetzold, Terry Meulemans, Stuart Moorman, Ed Prochaska, Tim Reed, Randy Smith, Darrell Spoonemore, Tim Trumble,  and Davis Vickers.
Angela Simmons
Angela Simmons, Vidor Middle School

Vidor Middle School's Employee of the month is Angela Simmons. She was nominated by Stacy Courts, and is a paraprofessional with a year of service.  "What can I do to help?  These are the words that Angela Simmons uses most!" says Courts.  She is seen as dedicated and dependable, eager to help at any time, and one who takes control of a situation. She goes out of her way to make sure students and staff have a good day. Sometimes she arrives with bags of doughnuts to distribute to people who look like they need a boost, and surprises staff with Sonic drinks, 'always at the right time,' says Courts. When moving from the middle school to the high school, she loaded up her SUV and helped move for about eight hours.  She is a friend both at work and away from work as well, helping staff and students whenever needed. 
Stacey Smith
Stacey Smith, Vidor Elementary

Stacey Smith is Vidor Elementary's Employee of the Month.  She is a third grade math teacher with five years of experience; one of those is at Vidor Elementary. She was nominated because "students enjoy learning in her classroom.  She is very innovative and strives to make learning fun. You may see her students throwing a ball back and forth in an effort to solve math equations written on the ball. She is a master at making math relevant to each student's life, explaining to them how they will actually use learned math skills to count all the money they will make after they graduate!"  Smith also gets along extremely well with her co-workers and is a team player. She has an infectious, upbeat attitude and is unwilling to give up on any child.  She will modify, re-teach, or whatever it takes to help each child be all he or she can be.  She also has a heart for those less fortunate and takes time to listen to their struggles. If she can help a child in any way, she is seen as one who will do that.  "It is very refreshing to see a young teacher so dedicated and excited about taking care of her children," say the administrators at VE.


Jo Campbell

Jo Campbell, Vidor High School

Vidor High School bookkeeper Jo Campbell was nominated by Pamela Smith as their January Employee of the Month.  She has eight years of service, and is viewed as one who is very efficient at her job. She works beyond the normal work hours without complaint.  "She deals with each person in a professional and friendly manner. She has had multiple positions and has dealt with them all amazingly."    In addition to her faithful work at Vidor High School, she is heavily involved with the Homecoming parade which her family has managed for many years, helping to make sure it runs well and is successful. She also sings at her church, Our Lady of Lourdes, and serves on the board of the Vidor Teachers Federal Credit Union.
