As part of their Carson CARES Campaign, Greater Nevada Credit Union (GNCU) recognized Carson City School District employees who exemplified positivity in school and made a difference in their school community this past year. Five grand prizes were awarded where winners received a $500 donation for their classroom or program as well as a $100 gift certificate or gift card to their favorite local restaurant.

Additionally, out of all the nominees, one individual was selected in a random drawing to win a hosted pizza party for their classroom or team, valued up to $400.

More than 115 nominations were submitted. Winners include the following:

  • Carson High School Early Childhood Teacher Kendra Tuttle
  • Student Support Services Adaptive Physical Education Teacher Kimberly Shepherd
  • Eagle Valley Middle School Seventh and Eighth Grade Science Teacher Tara Rispin
  • Fritsch Elementary School Social Worker and Safe School Professional Nicole Sitton
  • Fremont Elementary School CLS and Special Education Teacher Ryan Mick

Stephanie Walker at Pioneer Academy was also awarded a lunch party worth $400 for her school.

School employees were able to nominate multiple peers. Carson City School District and the Carson City School District Foundation are passionate about creating a foundation in which students can explore, question, succeed and develop in a meaningful and diverse way. GNCU’s passion for “Helping More People Live Greater” drives everything they do. Through GNCU’s Carson Cares campaign, they are helping Carson City School District employees achieve a stronger foundation of financial wellness for greater opportunities with access to tailored benefits.
