Mary Alice Reporting – From the Coalition of Rural and Appalachian Schools, a Tuscarawas Valley School employee received an award.

Secretary of Transportation, Buildings/Grounds, and Food Services, Julie Hoagland, was presented with the honor by Superintendent Mark Murphy.

He wishes all staff members could have been the recipient; however, giving the 2021 HERO award to Hoagland was fitting.

“Julie is extremely versatile. I’m just extremely proud of her. Our entire team is grateful for her. She does everything with a smile, she’s optimistic, she’s driven, a very hard worker, and a great team player.”

Above all else, Murphy points out that, if there is something that needs to be done, Hoagland commits to giving her all with a great attitude, energy, and enthusiasm.
