Renihan received the honor at the Monday Batesville School Board meeting.

Renihan’s helpfulness and positive attitude were frequently mentioned in this month’s award nominations. Some of the direct comments from Renihan’s peers who nominated her included:

  • “Megan came to us with all hands on deck. She has jumped in full force. She not only does her job, but she always asks each one of us if there is anything she can do to help us.”
  • “She is always so helpful and provides everyone assistance here at the district office as well as each individual campus. She does it all with a positive attitude and a smile.”
  • “Megan works tirelessly for the school district and our 24/7 needs to communicate. She has taken BSD to levels that people only dreamed about.”
  • “She handles pressure and stress with the greatest of ease. She is number one with the Batesville School District.”

Since 2012, Citizens Bank and the school district have been recognizing district employees for exceptional service to students, parents, their school, peers, and the district. The awards are presented at the school board’s monthly meeting, however, this month’s award is the first to be scheduled since February due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

All school district employees may be nominated for the award by their peers. Recipients are selected from nomination forms to receive the award, which includes a certificate from the board, a $25 gift card, and an insulated tumbler from Citizens Bank.
