Speaking on behalf of Superintendent of School Lisa Ruiz and the board, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Mona Hecht described Marilyn as someone who took pride in her work and went the extra mile to complete every task. 

Kathy, a senior typist clerk in the district’s facilities department, began her career with the district in 1991 and held positions of monitor, substitute clerical, part-time typist clerk and full-time typist clerk. She started as senior typist clerk in 2004, where she supported the district’s facilities director until her retirement in December 2018. She was also in-district coordinator for nonpublic school text books from 1997 to 2016 and managed in-district transportation. Ms. Hecht said that Kathy’s clerical skills, professionalism and knowledge of the community helped the district function effectively throughout the years.
