Support Mandi Leave a comment for Mandi

Mandi DiBartolomeo, also known as "Nurse DiBart," was nominated by her colleague, Stacie Sward.

Nurse DiBart supports students with physical and medical disabilites in her county's POHI program.  She has completely changed the lives of students and staff at WWT High School by providing training and support so that families feel safe sending their children to school when they otherwise wouldn't be able to attend. With Nurse DiBart's expertise and guidance, staff feel comfortable including students in typical high school activities, such as homecoming dances, pep rallies, field trips, classes, and graduation. Her calm and caring attitude in emergencies is appreciated by everyone in the district.  Nurse DiBart works without breaks, days off, or even a minute to sit down. She always puts the needs of others first.

"Without her support and dedication, our district would not have been able to support students during this pandemic.  She has been a rock of consistency and determiniation while we have been working through these challenging two years," said Sward. "She is someone who we all count on daily, and I honestly don't know what our students, families and staff would do without her."
