James Clemens selects Gonzalez as top staff member
MADISON – Yesy Gonzalez has received the award, “Staff Member of the Year,” at James Clemens High School.
“I have been working as a custodian for Madison City Schools for 17 years,” Gonzalez said. “Before the opening of James Clemens, I worked at Mill Creek and Horizon elementary schools.”
“I am originally from Honduras, but I have been living in the United States for over 40 years,” Gonzalez said. Thirty-three years ago, she moved to the Madison area to live closer to her family.
“In my spare time, I love to spend time with my three grandsons — Nicholas, Sammy and Timothy,” Gonzalez said.
In other recognition, Gonzalez was selected as the “Outstanding Support Staff Member of the Year” at the state level by the Alabama PTA Association.
Dr. Kerry Donaldson, Principal at James Clemens, and other administrators joined James Clemens PTSA leaders for the surprise announcement to Gonzalez before throngs of students and faculty. State PTSA officials invited Gonzalez to participate in a virtual awards ceremony.
