Employee of the Year Announcement

December 17, 2015 14:15

Every year we have the opportunity to vote for our co-workers who we feel make a positive impact in the lives of the students we serve. Although we have many people who do this on a daily basis, the votes have helped us narrow it down to one winner in each category by site/department. From the site/department winners, District winners were selected to represent PUHSD at the County level competition.

Congratulations to all of the winners. We are proud of you and thankful for the wonderful contributions you make to Perris Union High School District. We are better because of you!
