THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
The Natomas Unified school board recognized a group of outstanding employees at their meeting last night, Feb. 8.

Heron school principal Doug Orr was chosen 2012 administrator-of-the-year for “being focused and driven and is deeply passionate about successful teaching and learning.”

According to the district, student achievement drives Orr. As a result of this drive, students are learning – evidenced by a 38-point gain in standardized test results during the 2010-11 school year.

Orr has created a committee of staff and parents to research grant opportunities that support the educational mission at Heron. As a result of these efforts, the school was recently awarded a $5,000 Raley’s grant.

The school district also recognized its 2012 classified employees of the year: American Lakes Elementary – Maria Freeman, Bannon Creek Elementary – Jordana Marquez, Discovery High – Becky Hunt, H. Allen Hight Elementary – Deborah Morales, Heron K-8 – Christie Settanni, Inderkum High – Leticia Ballesteros, Jefferson Elementary – Vicki Bartholomew, Natomas High – Donna Millwee, Natomas Middle – Janine Trevino, Natomas Park Elementary – Heidi Ochoa, Two Rivers Elementary – Becky Pryor, Witter Ranch Elementary – Billy Wroe, Education Center – Tracy Cobb (also the overall district classified employee of the year), Food Service – Beverly Adversalo, Maintenance and Operations – Tuan Nguyen, and Transportation – Ed Fry.
