On Saturday, March 5th, Athena-Weston School District Superintendent Ann Vescio presented Ms. Buckles with flowers and the title of Weston Educator of the Year from the Weston Pioneer Association. Buckles is the Lead Cook for Athena Elementary and additionally provides food service to the Middle and High Schools. She is known for always going the extra mile; as Athena Elementary Principal Kerri Coffan noted, "She just loves the kids and is always doing a little bit more to bring them joy. For example, on Valentine's Day, Becky cut all the grilled cheese sandwiches into hearts—she's always putting in the extra effort to show care."
Please say hello to Becky and thank her for her commitment to our community's children!
