Congratulations to Kurt Noack, District Outstanding Volunteer of 2015-16.
Kurt is an essential part of the Nixon school community. He volunteers every day for as many as 7 hours. He listens, interacts, and challenges students as they read. He keeps them focused as they take reading counts tests. He plays math games. He is a lunch buddy. He helps them grow as readers and develop a positive self-image about themselves. Kurt is a positive male role model for students, especially those who don’t have such a role model at home. He encourages students in their academic growth and challenges them to raise their standards of behavior. He treats every student with dignity and respect. He shares his time and talents as if he is a Grandparent to each student and a friend to each staff member.

The District recognized school volunteers with a special program on April 25. The event featured the introduction of the 2016 Volunteer Hall of Fame - including a representative from each school’s volunteer workforce – as well as entertainment from the Hoover Elementary School “Hoover Harmony” Choir.
