Deserved fanfare for one who quietly does her job

Deserved fanfare for one who quietly does her job

Through the years, Washington Unified School District Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, Pam Geivett, has worked for (counting ‘Interims’) six superintendents.

On March 7, Geivett received an “Individual Excellence in Education Award” award from the Yolo County School Board Association in the “Confidential Employee” category.

WUSD school board trustee Teresa Blackmer, in presenting Geivett with her award, said, “Pam Geivett began her career with the Washington Unified School District nearly 20 years ago... Her experience at both the school site level and in the district office attest to her solid understanding of all district operations and distinguishes her as the ‘go-to person’ for employees and parents in our community.”

Geivett says, “I love my job.  I've been a secretary since I graduated from high school. I was a legal secretary/office manager for many years prior to coming to Washington Unified.
