Virginia Aranda was nominated by her colleague, Tim Sherman.

Ms. Aranda is an invaluable member of Medulla Elementary School. On top of her responsibilities as a school counselor, she was the COVID Coordinator, PBIS team lead, and a vital piece of the school's MTSS process.

"I leaned heavily on Ginnie's experience and knowledge when I was the Assistant Principal at Medulla. Not only is she a key support for the staff, but many students and families also look to Ginnie for her guidance when they are in need," said Sherman.
