Light of Parkway winners

5/20/2020 -- Three special Parkway employees were recently surprised with the announcement they are recipients of the 2020 Light of Parkway award!

  • Sean Smith, custodian, West High
  • Denise Anderson, library cataloger, Library Media Services
  • Susan Murray, principal's secretary, Bellerive Elementary

Winners receive $500 from the Parkway Alumni Association. Watch how they were each surprised here.

The Light of Parkway award is designed to bring recognition to the district’s extraordinary operations (non-certified) staff members who have helped to create a positive and caring environment for the people they serve and honors the memory of Sandy Finch, a former Parkway bus driver known for her exceptionally upbeat attitude and helpful interactions with staff, students and parents. The award for operations staff is made possible by the Parkway Alumni Association's Sandy Finch Light of Parkway Fund.
