Principal Terri Matteson presented two "leaders" as Glassford Hill Middle School's VIP classified and certified employees to the Humboldt Unified School District governing board at its Sept. 10 meeting. Juanita Apolinar and Dave Kreutter accepted certificates of appreciation and a small bag of candy from HUSD Supt. Paul Stanton, and applause from board and audience members.

Matteson recognized Apolinar, lead custodian for 12 years at Glassford Hill, for her "excellent job of keeping our campus looking prefect."

"Juanita is also a huge part of the GHMS family. She sits on our Site Council as a community member, and her concern for education makes her an important voice on the Council," Matteson said. "She does what needs to be done and that keeps our school moving forward."

Matteson also said Apolinar will lead the entire lunchroom in singing Happy Birthday to any student with a birthday.

Kreutter has taught science at Glassford Hill for the past eight years, and also sponsors a Garden Club, which runs the school's recycle and compost program. He has partnered with the Prescott Highlands Outdoor Nature Center to design and plan an Outdoor Habitat at the school.

Kreutter heads up the STEAM team, which integrates science, technology, engineering, art and math. He is the Focus Lead Teacher with the Northern Arizona University/Arizona Public Service STEM program.

"He and the STEAM Team will present five workshops over the course of the year," Matteson told school board members, adding that Kreutter seeks out and applies for grants. "He is an example for all of our students on what it means to be 'stalking success,'" referring to the school's motto.
