Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. The award is administered by the Communications and Community Relations Department. This month, our very own Mrs. Sandy Caceres was recognized for all she does for DFJHS!  She is amazing, and we're grateful to have her on our team!

Here's what Mr. Sorensen and Mrs. Burr had to say about her:

“Sandy is absolutely amazing! She is a dedicated educator who puts the needs of students at the top of everything that she does. She is willing to do anything that is asked of her, even when it doesn't fall within the scope of ‘counselor.’ Our students know that she cares for them and many know that they have a true friend and advocate in Ms. Caceres. She has developed a wonderful relationship with our Hispanic population, and our students and parents come directly to her knowing that she will help them in their situation or answer their questions.” ~Mike Sorensen

“Watching the faces of our Latino parents light up as Sandy welcomes them or comes in to help with a concern is one of the sweetest moments of kindness that I have ever observed. And, I get to see it over and over again! Parents feel her genuine care for their students. Sandy speaks Spanish like a native. Our ESL students love to be around Mrs. Caceres. She is their advocate. But it is all of our students and faculty that feel cared for by Sandy. She often stays after hours to make sure schedules are balanced just right, to figure out the best fit for students with special needs, etc. Beyond all of this, Sandy is an amazing single mother who also fosters children in her home who have been victims of abuse. She is truly our Diamond Fork and Nebo Hero!” ~Brenda Burr
