HOLLEY – The school recognized Sal DeLuca with the “Soaring to New Heights” award for his volunteer service preparing meals for students during the school closure last spring.

The district gives the Soaring to New Heights award each month to deserving students and adults who go above and beyond expectations, and lend their skills and abilities to help others. DeLuca last spring helped regularly with all aspects of the emergency food service.

The school district during its Sept. 21 meeting also recognized five Holley faculty and staff members who recently retired.

The group includes Accounts Payable Clerk Buffie Gleason, MS/HS science teacher Dan Burke, elementary cafeteria aide Janine Kraatz, MS/HS school nurse Donna Lenz and MS/HS special education teacher Lynnette Short.

The Board of Education also recognized four Holley teachers and two administrators for attaining tenure.

Teachers Zachary Busch, Crystal Elliott, Mark Hill and Carrie Rebis completed the four-year process to become tenured teachers for the district.

Assistant Elementary School Principal Tim Artessa and Director of Special Programs Stephanie Sanchez also received tenure.
