So, there are a lot of things that I could say about my sister-in-law, but for now I'll say she has been one of the best sister-in-law's that a girl could have. She has always been my biggest supporters. I can tell her anything. She made such a difference in life a long time ago. She was easy to love when I first met her. She immediately became a huge part of the family when she first met and married my brother. Sometimes, I forget that she is an in-law. She truly is my sister. So much so, that we fought my brother to watch Dolly Parton. LOL! Lord, the stories I could share. She is so deserving of this award!

I went to Ryan High School from 2000-2003 when Sandra was the lead custodian. Kids are very messy especially HS kids but those halls, bathrooms were always cleaned trash bins were never too full. Not only did she lead a great team, but she also respected the faculty and students.

Mrs. Gulley is by far one of the most outstanding people I've ever had the pleasure of crossing paths with. She's a very proud of her work and the staff with whom she works. But beyond that, she has a beautiful soul. She's willing to help anyone she sees in need. As soon as you meet her, you become family. She's not a judgemental person and loves everyone for who they are and never imposes change on those unless those individuals are going down a dark path. Then she becomes a protector of this person and will try to help them better their self. She's as close to a perfect person as you can get! She's loved by her family and community.

Sandra Gulley is definitely an amazing leader at our school. She keeps a tight ship and all of the custodians respect and appreciate her. She is kind and helpful to all the staff, teachers and students while she manages the cleanliness at our school.

Angela Holl Posted 5 months ago

Ms. Gulley is more than an employee. She greets everyone in the halls with a warm smile and hello. I have had the pleasure of getting these greetings as an employee but also when I was a student in these same halls many years ago. She motivates her staff to have the same kind and generous spirit and to treat everyone in the building as a VIP guest.

Virginia Keeling Posted 5 months ago

Ms. Gulley's leadership has been exceptional for every one of the many years she has been Head Custodian for Ryan High School. The building is kept clean and in order all the time. Quite the feat with hundreds of kids going through it every day. If I ever had a question or problem, she was there with an answer or solution. She also has the sweetest demeanor I have ever met.

Carolyn Harrod Posted 5 months ago

Ms. Gulley has helped me out so many times, and always with a smile. She brightens our building and keeps everything running smoothly. She must be a pretty awesome leader because the custodians on our campus are always friendly and willing to help. I very much respect Ms. Gulley on many levels.
