Friday, April 15, 2016
Congratulations to Kenyatta Medlock of Whiddon-Rogers Education Center on being selected as a 2016 School-Related Employee of the Year state finalist, announced by Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. The award recognizes outstanding education support personnel for the significant contributions they make to their schools and communities, and honors individuals who have demonstrated exceptional skill and dedication in the performance of their jobs.

Medlock, Broward County Public Schools School-Related Employee of the Year, serves as community liaison at Whiddon-Rogers Education Center, where she connects students who need a non-traditional educational setting with educational and support services. Whiddon-Rogers Principal Wylie Howard, Jr. praises Medlock for organizing school-wide events that provide students with opportunities to engage with local elected officials and community leaders. “We are very proud of Ms. Medlock,” he said. “She has a passion for working with students and makes it her personal goal to be a positive influence in their lives each day.”

“My wholehearted congratulations go out to the 2016 School-Related Employee of the Year finalists,” said Commissioner Stewart. “These finalists work alongside our state’s educators to provide the students in their communities with the high quality education they deserve. It is an honor to recognize these five individuals for their contributions, and to thank them for all that they do to help students succeed.”

Medlock is one of five state finalists being honored at an awards breakfast on April 27, 2016, at the Florida Hotel in Orlando, where the winner will also be announced.
