Waterloo High School Monitor Mike O’Brien was recognized as an Unsung Hero at the District’s May 2 Board of Education meeting.

An Unsung Hero is a Waterloo Central School District staff member who “goes above and beyond when serving students, faculty and staff on our campus, demonstrates a positive attitude toward others, and shows outstanding work performance.”

Mr. O’Brien was nominated by high school secretaries Jen Gray and Cindy Spencer.

Their nomination read: “Since the day Mike started in his position as monitor, he has been nothing but an asset to our team. He is an excellent communicator, is very intuitive and is well liked and respected by both students and staff. Mike also displays great initiative. He spends his day looking to help others; helping custodial staff with minor clean-up, assisting office staff with special requests , helps parents carry Trevor’s Gift out to vehicles and even delivers repaired student devices for his wife. Mike is always calm, always ready with a joke to lighten our day, always discrete when it comes to delicate situations and is ALWAYS in the right place at the right time. His dedication to student and staff safety is so appreciated and we are grateful he chose to spend his days at Waterloo High School.”
