Sussex Technical High School in Georgetown recently named student assistance specialist Carlos Villa as its Staff Person of the Month for January.
Principal John Demby commended Villa for his work during moments of crisis, according to the school’s announcement.
“Carlos has helped both students and staff deal with some severe emotional challenges,” he said.
Villa, who earned a bachelor’s degree from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Ark., joined the staff at Sussex Tech in 2000. He previously provided conflict resolution to area school districts and was contracted as a mediator with the U.S. Postal Service and other corporate training groups.
