2018 Employees of the Year

Elkhart Community Schools recognizes that the success of our students depends on hundreds of supportive staff members, from paraprofessionals to technical support. It is in this recognition that we ask our employees to nominate coworkers who have gone above and beyond to help each other and students, toward our goal of providing the highest level of education. We proudly present this year’s Employee of the Year Award recipients and nominees.

Congratulations to Tracy Kirts, who received the Elkhart Community Schools’ District Distinguished Support Staff of the Year Award. Tracy is the Testing Specialist for Elkhart Area Career Center.  Tracy takes tremendous personal and professional pride in the work that she does at the EACC.  She is responsible for administering all of the certification testing to the students in all of our programs, and her level of organization and knowledge of the myriad of testing platforms that are used makes this a very smooth and successful process.  One notable trait that makes Tracy special is the extreme joy and pride she expresses when students perform well on their certification exams.  She expresses this pride to students and staff alike and it is greatly appreciated by all.  ECS is extremely proud to call Tracy Kirts our District Distinguished Support Staff of the Year.

Congratulations to Stacey Borst, who received the Elkhart Community Schools’ Elementary Distinguished Support Staff of the Year Award. Stacey is the  Secretary at Mary Daly Elementary School. Stacey is a warm and caring individual that makes a room light up and makes others feel welcome.  She knows how to connect with people and make them feel valued for who they are and always makes people the number one part of her job! Stacey plays an instrumental role in the overall success of Mary Daly Elementary School by providing support between staff, students, parents, and administration. ECS is extremely proud to call Stacey Borst our Elementary Distinguished Support Staff of the Year.
