Kelly Griffus was nominated by her colleague, Tamara Lampes.

Ms. Griffus is an exceptional leader.  She comes to work everyday with a great attitude, and she is willing to help out in any way she can.  Her attendance is excellent.  The work she does in her Title One school is crucial.  She has a way with students that encourages them to be able to open up to her and share their feelings.

Ms. Griffus is young and has children of her own, so when she speaks, it's from experience and from the heart. Many of the staff members in her school refer to her and her comforting, logical and calming ways. She will donate her personal time to students during every minute of her day. She demonstrates professionalism in the way she carries herself, her disposition and the moral way she lives her life.

"We are proud and honored to have her as a part of our school and community," said Lampes.
