The Office of the Superintendent recognizes outstanding instructional and non-instructional employees in Uvalde CISD.

The Employee of the Month for February is awarded to Lupita Estrada, Morales Junior High Cafeteria Manager. Lupita has the honor of greeting the students at Morales Junior High twice a day with tasty meals. She puts forth a great effort along with the cafeteria staff to ensure the cafeteria is always ready and festive for the students. The cafeteria smells delicious and looks great. The cafeteria staff participates in all the festive themes by dressing and decorating the cafeteria to participate in campus activities.

Lupita’s kind heart has her thinking of others. She can be found preparing meals, helping to set-up for events, or training the ladies in the cafeteria. She is a great leader wherever she is at in the kitchen, the cafeteria, the school courtyard or in the community. It is well known that on Halloween if you have had your fill of candy you can go by Lupita’s home for a delicious plate of Carne Guisada. She prepares the meal for those parents who are rushing home from work to take their children Trick or Treating and did not have a chance to cook dinner. Lupita is truly a unique woman with a heart of gold. Mrs. Cynthia Besares shares, “Lupita clearly demonstrates that she loves what she does, loves to help and loves to serve everyone on Morales Junior High. We are lucky to have her at our campus!” Please help me congratulate Lupita Estrada!

This monthly recognition began in October 2014 utilizing an online form. District employees can be nominated by their supervisors, colleagues, community members, students, parents, etc. on an ongoing basis. A selection committee meets to review all nominations for the month to select one Employee of the Month. Nomination Forms are located on the Uvalde C.I.S.D. website (www.ucisd.net) on the UCISD Celebrates webpage. Nominations are to be submitted to the Office of the Superintendent, via e-mail to mgonzales4594@uvaldecisd.net, interoffice mail or dropped off at Central Office. Employee of the Month will be announced in the Superintendent’s Monday Message. The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding full-time Uvalde C.I.S.D. employees.
