Irma Trejob was recognized for advocating for and supporting the most in-need students and families in Orondo School District throughout the pandemic. As the district’s Community in Schools site director, Irma supports over 50 students by offering advice, coaching, and just being someone to talk to about their struggles. She connects parents with community supports, delivers food and home cleaning supplies, clothes, diapers, and so much.
“Our district could never have survived the past two years without Irma,” said Lance Young, Superintendent of Orondo School District, who nominated her. “In a recent middle school leadership class, our students were asked to list who were the most important people in their lives and why; Irma’s name was frequently mentioned.”
