The Golden Achievement Award for the month of February was presented to Mrs. Mildred Regulus, Center Elementary's Lunchroom Manager. Upon presenting the award, Principal Tyler Bennett said this:
"One of the greatest joys of my job is witnessing on a daily basis the interactions of my staff with the children. Tonight, we honor one of Center’s best. She is typically one of the first people Center’s students see first thing, and she always greets them with a warm “Good Morning” or “How Are You?” You can tell that she delights in the day-to-day greetings with our students, and she is one of the few who can call all of Center’s students her own!
"She takes great pride in the job that she does, and she always wants to work with our teachers and staff in whatever way to make things better for the kids. Even though her greatest priority is our students, she still makes all the rest of Center feel special as well with her gracious smile and wonderful hugs, and for this principal, from the way she says, “my principal” to even my name “Mr. Bennett.” She has been called on numerous times at the last minute to change the daily schedule and operations of her department, and she has always been flexible and understanding because she knows that students come first! She truly believes that students are the most important thing at Center, and she exhibits this in her actions and words on a daily basis.
"So, tonight, it is an honor for me to present to the superintendent and the board of education Mrs. Mildred Regulus, Center’s lunchroom manager, as the February Golden Achievement Award recipient. Congratulations Mrs. Regulus!"
