The California Credit Union honored two additional employees at its third recognition event at Pinetree Community School Tuesday.
Honorees of the event included school office manager Kristie Cooper and first grade teacher Donna Burkman.
“Oh my word, (I’m) just so honored and just humbled by it really,” said Burkman, who has taught at Pinetree since 1998. “I feel blessed to work with so many people that care about their job. It inspires me.”
Cooper, who began working at the school last year, was equally as humbled by the experience.
“I am just so honored. I have been at Pinetree for such a short period of time,” she said. “I have developed amazing relationships…I couldn’t do it without everybody.”
Tuesday’s recognition was part of a yearlong partnership between the Sulphur Springs Union School District and the nonprofit credit union to acknowledge outstanding teachers and employees at each of the district’s nine school sites.
