Pat Lake was nominated by a parent of a student, Christopher Birkenstamm.
As a school secretary, Mrs. Lake is the key player in communicating with parents and community members about what’s happening at the school. She builds a positive rapport with students, parents, and staff members. Each and every student knows she genuinely cares for them. She is recognized for her outstanding leadership skills and her ability to successfully multi-task throughout the day. Her positive, caring attitude makes the office a welcoming place to walk into when you enter the school. She is compassionate and organized, and most importantly, she does her job with a smile on her face, regardless of the many challenges that the day may bring.
"I have had the opportunity to get to know Mrs. Lake over the years, as all of my five children have been or are current students at Quarry Hill, and I am honored to recommend her for the LifeChanger of the Year Award," Birkenstamm said.
