CARE Award – November 2016

Canby Kiwanis and the Canby Business Community are pleased to announce the following Canby Area Recognition of Excellence (C.A.R.E.) Award recipient:

Sande Ely, KEY Program Skills Trainer at Baker Prairie Middle School.

Erick Welsh nominated Sande for the award because she “has the amazing ability to be compassionate and consistent while still motivating students to achieve their highest potential.”

Sande often goes to her students’ community and athletic events to provide moral support they may not get otherwise.

“I know that countless students owe their success to her steadfast commitment to education in Canby,” explained Welsh. “Sande comes to work with an unbreakable spirit. She is an inspiration to myself and many others.”

Congratulations, Sande.

If you know a teacher, counselor, coach or support staff that has made a difference in your life, the life of a child, or in our community, consider nominating him/her for a CARE Award. You can find the nomination form here.
