WIT Award goes to Transportation, Lincoln High staff

A group of Lincoln Public Schools employees were honored last week with the LPS WIT Award for going above and beyond to help a student this past school year.

When a student needed assistance at a bus stop after school, the bus driver and transportation paraprofessional drove the student back to Lincoln High School. Teachers and counselors stayed with the student until 7 p.m., when the student could be picked up.

The WIT Award recognizes the moments when LPS employees go above and beyond to do “Whatever It Takes” (WIT).

The honored Lincoln High staff were special education teachers Susan Avery and C.J. Brison; Assistant Special Education Coordinator Trish Lanning; Special Education Team Leader Bryan Mack; and guidance counselor Becky Tegeler.

LPS Associate Superintendent for Instruction Jane Stavem presented the Lincoln High staff with their award on May 21.

Bus driver Dick Zechmann and paraprofessional Shawn Krause received their awards May 23 from Stavem, along with Associate Superintendent for Human Resources Eric Weber and Associate Superintendent for Business Affairs Liz Standish.
