You Make a Difference

You Make A Difference / June 14, 2022

Staff members are nominated by colleagues to receive a You Make a Difference Award for their support of students and the mission of Salina Public Schools. Board of Education members surprise recipients during their workday with a lapel pin and a handwritten note. 

Cassie Chesney
Central High School Nurse

Cassie’s connection with students has helped them feel a sense of belonging to the extent that they would stop by her office to check in about their day. She also assisted at Opportunity Now and sponsored the GSA Club at Central High. Thank you, Cassie, for making a difference!

Vicky Bruner 
Special Education Coach

Serving the preschool classrooms in our eight elementary schools, she covers a lot of ground and yet still is able to go the extra mile. She helped train new paras, offered ideas and made materials for students, and filled in when classrooms were short-staffed. Thank you, Vicky, for making a difference!
