We would like to congratulate this year’s Ashley Falls Classified Employee of the Year, Gerardo Hernandez! Gerardo consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty as our night custodian. By creating the wooden structures for our yearly scarecrows on his own time, fixing different items for staff, stopping his work to solve a problem, or supporting a weekend event, and always doing so with a smile, a positive attitude, and no expectation that he will receive anything in return, Gerardo exemplifies the attitude and dedication that helps to make Ashley Falls such a wonderful learning environment.
