September RepMO Hero Dianna Wheeler

Join us in congratulating Dianna Wheeler, Head Cook at Sweeny Elementary, for being chosen as the SEPTEMBER REPMO HERO OF THE MONTH! We are so thankful that she chooses to serve in Republic! #repmoproud
A compilation of nominations received in regards to Dianna from district employees is below. She will be honored at the October Board of Education meeting, and will also receive $500 to be spent on the resources of her choice. 
Sweeny Elementary nominates Dianna Wheeler for this month's RepMO Hero! We have all had to make adjustments this school year but Dianna has truly exemplified what it means to be flexible and change on a dime.  She has led her kitchen staff through all the adjustments seamlessly.  She is always accommodating to the staff and students. She writes sweet notes on the to-go boxes and even the bananas to help uplift our students! Dianna never complains, even on tough days.  She always puts her best foot forward and truly demonstrates what it means to be a leader. Dianna sees the big picture when leading the kitchen and can pivot quickly as needed. This was demonstrated over the summer when she led the summer school lunch program. Since then she has risen as a leader amongst her team and has been asked to help out in other kitchens to help with flow and ease. We are so thankful for the hard work and dedication that Dianna brings to Sweeny every day!
