Today the Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD) recognizes and celebrates Administrative Professionals’ Day. The day recognizes the work of secretaries, aides, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.
“A huge thank you goes out to our administrative professionals for their time, energy, and dedication to SMSD!” says Chris Lowe, director of elementary services.
These professionals are the backbone of any building, Scott Sherman, director of secondary services added.
“Handling daily interruptions with care, keeping our offices organized, and schedules straight, our administrative support professionals provide unique contributions, often going above and beyond, to support our student success,” Sherman continued. “They are a vital part to the success of all buildings. We appreciate all the hard work that our administrative professionals provide for the whole school community.”
SMSD is grateful for their care and tenacity to keep schools functioning and efficient while providing the flexibility to handle the unexpected.
Superintendent Dr. Michelle Hubbard thanked all administrative professionals this week during the regular Board of Education meeting.
“To all administrative professionals, thank you for all that you do to support staff, students, and the community,” Dr. Hubbard expressed. “Thank you for keeping Shawnee Mission strong.”
This special recognition day has undergone many name changes over the years, but the recognition follows the initial goal: celebrating and appreciating the hard work and devotion of administrative professionals.
Thank you for all you do!
