Beth McSpadden (pictured above, left, with Ashley Engles of Citizens Bank), Food Service Assistant at Batesville School District, is the recipient of the November “Citizens Bank Above & Beyond Award,” according to a release from the bank.
Since 2012, Citizens Bank and the Batesville School District have recognized staff members who go “above and beyond” to realize the district’s mission to empower today’s students for tomorrow’s challenges. Staff in all schools and departments throughout the district nominate award recipients, who receive a Certificate of Excellence, a $25 gift card, and a 20-ounce insulated tumbler from Citizens Bank. The award is presented at the Batesville School Board meeting each month.
Fellow team members commented on McSpadden’s commitment to always put ‘Students First’:
- “Beth is always working and trying to make sure the kids come first. She is always trying to work with her staff to make sure they have everything they need and helps them in any way she can.”
- “Beth is always up for any challenge I throw at her! She is willing to step in and do whatever is necessary to make sure we feed the kids safely and kindly. Beth has been a committed member of the Food Service Team for over 17 years, working every day to make it happen, and is always looking out for the best interests of the students.”
