AIS First Avenue Nurse Jenny Parker Receives Oct. Cause for Applause
Jenny Parker, nurse at the Academy for Innovative Studies, First Avenue Campus, was awarded the EVSC’s Cause for Applause award for October. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.
Parker, who has worked at AIS First since last January, was nominated by more than a dozen of her fellow workers. Each coworker wrote about the incredible things Parker does for both the students at AIS and her coworkers and how selfless she is.
AIS First Principal Kristine Eichholz, says “Jenny Parker is the most incredibly altruistic person I’ve ever known.” Another coworker, Hannah Blout says Parker continually goes above and beyond her normal duties as a school nurse. “She spends countless hours each week helping and worrying about our students. She reports to work early and stays late most days.”
Anyone can nominate an employee of the EVSC for the award. Deadline for nominations is the third Friday of each month.
