Nancy Schoenweitz, R.N., at Merton Williams Middle School in Hilton, was named School-Related Professional (SRP) of the Year at the staff convocation at Hilton High School on September 3.

Schoenweitz has been employed in the Hilton School District for 18 years. She is described as someone who always works to meet the needs of students, parents and co-workers; has a great rapport with students; and uses humor to lighten difficult situations.

“It is all in the attitude, a positive attitude goes a long way and is contagious,” said Schoenweitz. “After all, there is a silver lining to every dark cloud; you just have to look for it sometimes!”

The other SRP of the Year finalists are: Lynda Donovan, teaching assistant at Hilton High School; Elaine Iabone, teaching assistant at Northwood Elementary School; Connie Romano, teacher aide at Village Elementary School; and Cindy Ward, teaching assistant at Quest Elementary School.

Hilton Central School District School-Related Professional of the Year honors the exceptional skills and initiative shown by Hilton staff members. Nominees are dues paying members of the Hilton Central School Employee Association (HCSEA) for at least five years prior to nomination. Applicants are judged on performance of duties, handling of an unusual assignment and how they embody the image of the school-related professional.
