Degrees and Certifications:


STAFF WINNER: Allan Bruner
I would nominate Allan Bruner.  He's an effective, inspiring teacher and a committed leader.  When I was over at the high school last week I was reminded of how many students' lives he's impacted through the multitude of extra-curricular programs he runs.  A true Renaissance Teacher among us. Allan is unfailingly supportive of his colleagues and students alike, and has a truly innovative spirit. I have seen firsthand as a student and a colleague how much he has put into his work at Colton High School.  He has brought so many opportunities to Colton students.  He is a wonderful role model to students and colleagues. Allan has been a tremendous asset in navigating many transitions/changes over the past year.  Allan's ability to always put students first in decision making is admirable.  Mr. Bruner is a coach to his colleagues and exudes how important relationships are in education.  His wisdom and expertise play a critical role in student and staff success.  We are truly thankful he decided to devote his teaching career to Colton School District. 

STUDENT WINNER: Kaylee Holliday
I would like to nominate Kaylee Holliday.  She is extremely hard working, keeps trying when things get difficult, helps others whenever she can, and is one of the kindest human beings I have every worked with. When our staff acknowledges "Honor" in our students, Kaylee's name immediately comes to mind. Not only does Kaylee come to school with a bright and shining smile each and every day, but the hard work that Kaylee puts in, day in and day out, is evident in her academic progress.  By January of this year, Kaylee had not only surpassed her reading and math yearly projected growth goals, but she flew past them by a significant margin.  This type of improvement only comes to those who are focused and fully dedicated to their academics.  She is, without a doubt, an amazing student.
