Hurt, secretary to the district superintendent of Orleans/Niagara BOCES, was recognized by the Western New York Educational Service Council during the Awards for Excellence held at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens. Mrs. Hurt shared the honor with four other support staff that were chosen by a committee from over 100 nominations.

Her boss, Dr. Clark Godshall, said he could not think of a more worthy recipient of the prestigious award.

“Cindy is the glue that keeps the District Superintendent’s office together,” Godshall said. “She is well respected, extremely organized, efficient, unflappable and sincere, all the qualities you could possibly want in a secretary and more. If we were a sports team, she would be our MVP.”

Hurt has worked for BOCES for 34 years and is a Medina resident.
