District lead Counselor Daliana Goins states, Lucy, your school counseling efforts for our MCSD students, families, and staff have been noted among the numerous write-ups you received from your school colleagues, and you are well deserving of this recognition. As a quick back story for everyone, I’d like for you to all know that Lucy was actually in the final running for “Teacher of the Year” at HOB this school year which speaks volumes to the impact she has had on the teachers and staff. Lucy, I’m so sad that you won’t have an Employee Recognition Banquet to attend to receive this award (due to COVID-19). Today, your fellow school counselor and school social worker colleagues celebrate you!
