Everyday Heroes: Anthony Berardi, Marcy Hie, and Robin McHolm-Morris
We are honoured to present this week’s Everyday Heroes for the 2022/23 school year.
Every week we celebrate PVNC staff members who have been recognized by a parent, student or colleague as an Everyday Hero. Every school and every department in our Board has an Everyday Hero who expresses their kindness, courage and love through simple, ordinary actions that uplift the lives of the people around them and the students we serve. An Everyday Hero is a caring adult, an empathetic colleague, somebody who simply makes going to work each day worthwhile.
This week we are celebrating Anthony Berardi, Marcy Hie, and Robin McHolm-Morris.
|Anthony is a Learning Technology Specialist at the CEC. Anthony was nominated by a colleague, who said:
“Anthony is a PVNC Learning Technologies Specialist. He’s a guy who can be counted on to assist staff with all questions and jobs related to computers. The staff at St. Mary CES in Lindsay love having Anthony around! Not only is he a skilled worker, Anthony is also wonderfully efficient, unobtrusive, and a genuinely nice person. No tech-related query seems out of Anthony’s reach–and that brings much relief and peace of mind to his colleagues. Anthony kindly shares just the right amount of information so that we can carry on once he has worked his magic. Thank you, Anthony!”
||Marcy is an EA at Immaculate Conception CES. Marcy was nominated by a colleague, who said:
“Marcy Hie is exceptional not only at her job, but in her whole entire being. She comes to work with a smile on her face and a commitment to help our student population that require her support. She goes above and beyond. She gets to know students and staff on a personal level and makes that connection meaningful. She is loved by the student she serves, and by the staff she works with because she is kind, caring, supportive, and generous. She is making bracelets during her spare time, so students can sell them to raise money for our pedal for hope school fundraiser in memory of our Catholic school council chair, Melissa Hinze, who died last year because of cancer. There is an a mean bone in the body of Ms. Hie. If there is, students and staff have never seen it. When I grow up, I hope I can be like Marci Hie!”
||Robin is a teacher at St. Mary Campbellford CES. Robin was nominated by a colleague, who said:
“Mrs. Morris demonstrates the compassion and caring that all educators should have in their daily lives. She is constantly working behind the scenes to ensure each and every student has success. Many days she can be found supporting students during her breaks and lunch hours. When she’s not helping a student, she’s mentoring new staff as well as old!
Her desire to support others is evident in her passion to continue learning and push herself as an educator. Mrs. Morris is frequently learning new techniques and is quick to share her knowledge with students and staff. As a seasoned educator, she shares her expertise and experience with all.
Mrs. Morris is someone who students know they can turn to when they need support. She is also a peer that many staff can turn to when faced with a task. Her selfless dedication to making our school a better place makes her a true hero to families, students and staff!”
We would like to thank Anthony, Marcy, and Robin for their commitment to creating a culture of faith, hope and love to ensure equity and well-being at our board.
