Staff Awarded for "Excellence in Service" by the Ohio School Boards Association
This award is very well deserved for the work they did last spring as they provided nourishing meals to our Elida families when the pandemic first hit. They packed and distributed over 36,000 combined meals to families last spring from mid-March to the end of May 2020.
They were recognized during the OSBA Northwest Region Virtual Fall Conference on Thursday, October 15th.
Thank you for all you do all year long for Elida students & staff!
