Employee Health Benefits are provided by YABC.net

Last year we were tasked with creating a district wide wellness initiative that promotes increased fitness and health among employees and students, campus safety overall, communication goals, conserve resources and that explores district mental health service needs.

The work group broke the initiative down into steps and Employee Wellness was the first area chosen. We sent out a Wellness survey to all our employees in the spring and 168 employees responded.

The “You Make a Difference” Red Plate Recognition Program

Stacey Lopez

Stacey Lopez has been one of my constant “go to” people on campus.  She became my bestie, ssshhhh she doesn’t know that part yet, and my  unofficial mentor.  Not only is she a delight to work with, she goes the extra mile to make sure that nothing gets lost in the translation.  Communication and feedback is always positive and informative.  I know that if I ever have to ask Stacey anything, she will be 100% available to answer detailed and factual questions; so I move forward without any confusion.
