Kudos to “Signor” Tony Paucar. OMHS won the Lighthouse Lottery when Tony was assigned as our Daly Service Technician. He works patiently with every student (in English / Spanish) or staff member to resolve any tech problem and never gives p on any device no matter what challenges it presents. When on an almost daily basis students hand him “mutilated” devices he will just calmly coax them back to life with his expertise and a few parts.
Kudos to Shannon Olsen and Kayla Franze for bringing so much light to the ESOL office!
