Honored employees are Nancie Cooney, Elizabeth Nemitz, Laurie Scharett, and Jonna Costin.

The Central Valley Central School District Foundation recognized the district’s students and employees of the quarter at its December 10 meeting.

“We implemented this program at the beginning of the school year as a way to recognize students for excellence in academics and character,” said JoAnn Duga, Foundation president. “It’s also a great way to shed light on the employees who go above and beyond for our students.”

The program will recognize up to four students and employees each quarter with the hope that there will be recipients from each school building: Fisher and Barringer Elementary Schools, Jarvis Middle School, and CVA High School.

First quarter student recipients include Madeline Green and Makayla Rodgers from Jarvis Middle School, as well as CVA students Audreanna Greene and Nicholas Shedd. No nominations for elementary students were received.

The employee recipients were: Nancie Cooney, Barringer Road art teacher; Jonna Costin, CVA physical education teacher and coach; Elizabeth "Betsy" Nemitz, Jarvis teacher assistant; and Laurie Scharett, Jarvis teacher. No nominations for Fisher Elementary School or the CVCSD bus garage were received.

Community members who would like to nominate a CVCSD employee for the quarterly recognition can find the nomination form at or on the Central Valley Central School District Foundation Facebook page.
