Everyday Heroes Award
Washington Elementary School's nurse, Saundra “Sandy” McCauley, was one of seven people from across the country recognized with an Everyday Heroes Award by the American Federation of Teachers in 2012. Sandy won in the health care category and received her award at the AFT convention in July 2012.
“I was very surprised because I don’t see myself as doing anything that I wouldn’t expect anybody else to do. I see myself differently from everybody else apparently. I mean, if I see something that I can make better, then I want to do that." --Sandy McCauley
