Kluckholn Special Education Instructor Honored


(Le Mars) — The Le Mars Community School District awarded its “Employee of the Month” honors Wednesday morning to a Kluckholn Special Education instructor.  Madison Whited was presented the honor during a small ceremony.  She has been with the Le Mars Community Schools for a little more than a year.  Cari Herbst nominated Madison Whited, and the nomination reads in part:  “Madison is always positive and happy to help everyone.  She has gone above and beyond to help with students who are not on her roster.  She is helping while a person is on maternity leave.  Madison has rearranged her schedule to fit IEP students for this time.  She has been there for a student who just needs to talk with someone.  Madison has been a great resource to go to when there are questions about how to best help students.  She has definitely made this year easier with all her help, regardless of her workload.  Madison is a great addition to Kluckholn Elementary.”  Whited says she enjoys the students and looks forward to every day working with the students.

Members of the Le Mars Community School Foundation and the Le Mars Community School Alumni Association were on hand for the award presentation to Madison Whited on Wednesday.  From left to right, Deb Ahlers, Madison Whited, Janelle Bixenman, and Carolyn Vance.  The second photo features Madison being congratulated by her family members.  Austin, her husband, is on the left with her parents on her right.
