Hendry County School District’s employee of the year


HENDRY COUNTY - The Hendry County School District (HCSD) had many well deserved, hardworking, support staff throughout the 2020-2021 school year, but it was Country Oaks Elementary’s own Nancy Cantu, who was named for Employee of the Year.  


“It truly takes a village to raise and educate our children! We could not operate our schools without bus drivers, mechanics, custodians, paraprofessionals, nurses and tons of other support staff! Today we recognized several exceptional folks that go above and beyond for our students. We also recognized Nancy Cantu as our support staff employee of the year! We also enjoyed a great meal from the Staghorn Restaurant,” Mike Swindle, Hendry County Superintendent of Schools said. 


The award was presented to Cantu during the HCSD annual luncheon and awards presentation. 


“I am honored to receive the Hendry  County Employee of the Year award. It humbles me so much to see that all the work I do does not go unrecognized by my work family and by our students’ parents. I am blessed to work at Country Oaks Elementary,” beamed Nancy Cantu.
