Charlene Lebron was nominated by one of her colleagues.

"Nurse Lebron joined our school this year, and she has already proven herself as a phenomenal addition to our team," explains her colleague. "In the middle of a pandemic, it's an extremely challenging time to be a nurse, especially in a school. Charlene goes above and beyond every single day!"

Ms. Lebron sees students with a myriad of illnesses and injuries, always treating them with love, care, and respect. In addition to her normal, daily visits to her office, she is also juggling the challenges that come along with COVID. She has spent many long hours at school conducting contact tracing, calling families, and giving COVID tests so students can return to school sooner. Even though this is hard, she never lets it show to students and families. 

Ms. Lebron is supportive of her colleagues, too. She communicates quickly with them regarding their students and what's going on with them. She ensures that information is disseminated to everyone who needs to know, and she supports her colleagues and their medical concerns with students. Ms. Lebron even performs COVID tests on staff who want the extra reassurance that they are keeping their students and community safe.

"We appreciate her so much and can't imagine our school without her," said her nominator.

Charlene an amazing asset to Homer Schools, but she is also an asset to the community. She always goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is loved and taken care of. Not only is she a school nurse, but she's a kind heart and a shoulder when kiddos need uplifting. I don't know anyone else who is more deserving!

My mom works very hard and is very dedicated to the school. My friends in the school love her as the school nurse and know they are getting the best treatment around. She treats all the student with respect and love and as one of her own children.

Ms. Lebron is an outstanding additions to HCS. Her communication to parents is top notch and having her on staff is such a blessing. My children have had several experiences with her and most recently my daughter had to get a Covid test administered by Ms. Lebron. The kindness and comfort she provided for my daughter helped ease the stress and anxiety of having to do the test. I am so grateful to have her at school helping keep my children safe and feel like she is a very deserving individual of Lifechanger of the year award. Her compassion for the children shows in all that she does.
