Education Support Professional of the Year

The WOEA Fall Forum is over and everyone came away with something - either with extra knowledge learned from a session attended, a warmed heart from listening to an outstanding high school choir from Trotwood-Madison, a full belly from good food, the satisfaction of networking with members of different locals, or winning a door prize. 

Thank you to Piqua Central Intermediate School for sharing your great facility with us! Thank you teachers for opening your classrooms for our workshops. 

Winners of the door prizes were: Kristen Priddy (Huber Heights EA), Kim Willoughby (Preble-Shawnee Local EA), Felicia Chelgrin (Preble-Shawnee Local EA), Sophia Rodriguez (Coldwater TO), Diane Satanek (Xenia Education Supt. Staff) and Joyce Coney-Lacy (Mad River EA). Joyce also won the fabulous gift basket put together with donations from the WOEA Human and Civil Rights Committee. Scott Hamman (Troy City SSA), won the gift card from Joy Harper, Horace Mann.
