Carreno was recognized early this afternoon at the Performing Arts Center, following a luncheon at the High School for all support employees across the Union district. Monthly winners were also recognized during the program; each received a basket of goodies. See sponsors below.
“Conchita Carreno is dependable, trustworthy and compassionate,” emcee Kurt Frentzel told the crowd. “She goes above and beyond and makes every employee who she meets feel special and cared for. Let’s hear it for Conchita!’
