Staff recognized during breakfast on Day of the Teacher
Teachers in the Lassen Union High School District were honored throughout the week and Wednesday, May 9, many met at 7:30 a.m. in Lassen High School’s library for cake and coffee.
On behalf of the LUHSD Board President Ken Theobald said it recognizes there is a great team of teachers.
During a Lassen Union High School District Board meeting on Tuesday, May 8, students were in attendance to show the board different projects they have been working on. There were also students who shared about recent competitions they participated in.
Theobald said, “All the things that are happening with the kids are great stuff and that’s a reflection of you guys from the time you put in and the effort you put in and the love you have for those kids. We recognized that as a board and want you to know that.”
The great stuff that has been happening with the students is a reflection on the teachers, Theobald said.
In addition, Dean Stevens, a teacher at Credence High School, gave the inaugural life sketch about himself.
Superintendent Dan Lewis said life sketches will be implemented at next year’s faculty meeting to help the staff get to know each other better.
Other teachers in the district were also recognized for their work and dedication to the students. The teachers also shared about their students’ recent accomplishments at a variety of state competitions. Those recognized received flowers or a plaque. The teachers who were recognized were:
Liz Ammon — Ammon began teaching FFA classes in the fall and for a rookie teacher Lewis said the things she has accomplished are phenomenal.
FFA students recently attended the FFA state convention where the horse team placed fourth and sixth in the state and the Best Informed Greenhands placed fifth in state finals.
Maria Fregulia — Fregulia took students to the FHA/HERO State Leadership meeting in Fresno from Saturday, April 28 through Tuesday, May 1.
Students participated in regional meetings and a variety of career development workshops.
They also participated in different competitions.
Fregulia said one of her freshmen students took first place in the state for salad preparation. Another student also competed in menu planning and table display. Fregulia said the student didn’t place in the competition but did have a good showing.
Eugene Perkins — Perkins is Lassen High’s Skills USA Advisor, and his students recently competed in the Skills USA state competition from Thursday, April 19 through Thursday, April 26.
Two of his students brought home medals from the competition.
Wade Green won a silver medal in internetworking and Eli Lattin won a gold medal in welding.
Both boys will compete in the national SkillsUSA competition, which will be held in Kansas City, Mo.

There were three nights of project presentations last week and Rose organized the event and found judges for each night.
Lewis said Rose does a phenomenal job in making phone calls, working with the community and building partnerships.
Lewis said, “This whole senior project coordinator thing is vastly underpaid and under-recognized in our school for someone that does the work she does.”
