Nominated by:  Aubrey Thornock 

THE PEAK AWARD CUSTOMER SERVICE PROGRAM
Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. The award is administered by the Communications and Community Relations Department. 

Aubrey Thornock nominated Mandi Wilson.  Thornock said, “Mandi is always going above and beyond helping students. I am a counselor so I hear a lot of what the students say about teachers. Students are comfortable talking to her about anything. Mandi is always willing to bend over backwards for our kids. Students enjoy her class, and they really enjoy her. Students trust her. Mandi tries to understand where kids are coming from before making a judgement on how to handle each situation. Mandi is a pleasure to work with.”

“It was a huge honor to be nominated by Mrs. Thornock.  I am so lucky to have a job that I love. Confucious said, ‘Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.’ I couldn't agree more,” said Mandi Wilson.
