Written by Wyatt Burichka on May 28, 2021
Genevieve Sheets was recognized for the R.I.S.E. Award, honoring and promotes excellence for teachers that are certified in pre-k through the high school level.
R.I.S.E. stands for Recognizing School Inspirational Employees. This is the first year that this award has been presented.
Sheets is the School Nutrition Director for Park County School District 6 and was surprised to have received the award.
“I think that there were a lot of classified staff in the state who are really compassionate towards kids and doing all sorts of great things,” Sheets said. “I want to tell everybody thanks for your support. Supporting the school nutrition program. We are really happy we are able to provide that service to those families who choose to partake.”
First Lady of Wyoming Jennie Gordon presented the award to Sheets.
Sheets is now being considered for additional recognition at the national level by the US Department of Education.
