These employees, along with Teacher of the Year recipients, years of service and retirees, will be recognized during Parkway's virtual Appreciation Evening event, on April 26.

The Light of Parkway award is designed to bring recognition to the district’s extraordinary operations (non-certified) staff members who have helped to create a positive and caring environment for the people they serve and honors the memory of Sandy Finch, a former Parkway bus driver known for her exceptionally upbeat attitude and helpful interactions with staff, students and parents. The award for operations staff is made possible by the Parkway Alumni Association's Sandy Finch Light of Parkway Fund.

Congratulations to all employees who were nominated for the Light of Parkway award.
