In our last issue, we mentioned how Mrs. Domres was nominated as teacher of the year for our school. But as we finish out the school year, we’re here now to mention one other staff member received an outstanding award because of their hard work. Our famous Campus Monitor, Cody Workman, was nominated an employee of the year in the whole Osceola County.
As most people expected, Mr. Workman was shocked to hear about his recent accomplishment. “I was shocked. I mean I wasn’t expecting it because there’s a lot of better candidates, I mean in my opinion.” Mr. Workman emphasizes with a smile. Even though he won this title, he still stays humble and does not brag about the award.
As a security guard, Mr. Workman does a lot of tasks around campus such as making sure the gates are locked, wandering the halls in order to check for student lingering, etc. Through these tasks, he provides a lot of aid for our school and helps in whatever way he can. Besides his usual tasks, Mr. Workman has gone beyond by doing jobs that are not exactly in his job description such as fixing doors or helping a teacher carry stuff around.
Before working at St. Cloud, he was in the military for a total of 12 years with two deployments overseas. Even though the high school lifestyle could be stressful for some people, that is nothing compared to what Mr. Workman can handle. “My background, where I come from, I’ve had some stressful situations,” he states. Normally, having this prior moment has impacted the way he is today. Even though he tends to be calm about things, he always has those stressful moments linger throughout his workdays.
Mr. Workman has been with our school for 4 years now after switching from doing maintenance on the other side of the county to working here at SCHS. He decided that this change was important to him because of how physical it was to his body. “I just got tired of working with my back as much, so I figured I'd come to something a little easier with better scheduling. "Workman stated.
Even though he has not been with the school for long, he is still part of our bulldog family. We know that he is an amazing worker, and we can always count on him when we need him. We hope that he stays with our school for a little while longer and hope that he continues to enjoy working with us.
