August 2019 – At the beginning of each school year, three outstanding teachers are recognized and receive the BEST Award at Convocation. The BASD marked history today as we started a new tradition to highlight a support staff member and present them with the title of BASD Employee of the Month.

Dr. Joseph Roy, Superintendent of Schools, surprised Margaret “Peggy” McKinnon with the honor of being named the Bethlehem Area School District Employee of the Month for August 2019.

Peggy McKinnon works in the Information Services Department as an Information Systems Specialist. She has been employed with the district for 13 years.

Dr. Roy stated: “Peggy is highly skilled, dedicated, and respected by everyone. She is a wonderful representative of BASD’s talented and committed support staff who, behind the scenes, help make the district run for the benefit of our students.”

We wish many thanks to Peggy for her continued service to the district. Congratulations Peggy.
