Mrs. Deanna Hess, the District Chairperson for Health Services, was selected to receive the 2019 Highmark Foundation Advancing Excellence in School Nursing award in the School Nursing Practice & Leadership Award category. Winners in this category have demonstrated leadership in school health and exhibit qualities of care and compassion.
As part of the award, Mrs. Hess received $1,500 which she has chosen to use for health-related supplies and equipment for our schools. She was presented her award by Ms. Yvonne Cook from the Highmark Foundation. While Mrs. Hess was nominated for this award by Dr. Marybeth Irvin with letters of support from Dr. Steinhauer and Mr. Kitsko, her contributions, expertise and caring are well known across the District. We are pleased and proud to see her excellence recognized in this way.
