Haley, Harding receive June MVP Awards

Congratulations to the June recipients of the Most Valuable Patriot (MVP) award, special education teacher Shauna-Rae Haley and BPES administrative assistant Brittny Harding! 

Shauna-Rae Haley, BPHS special education teacher 

Shauna-Rae Haley has worked at Broadalbin-Perth Jr./Sr. High School as a special education teacher for two years. During that time, she has interacted with students on many different levels. In addition to her time in the special education department, she has worked with the B-P Unified Sports program, which brings together students with and without disabilities on the same sports teams. This is the second year of the Unified Sports program at B-P.

“It's incredibly rewarding to serve in roles that help cultivate a school culture rooted in respect, acceptance, inclusion, and unity,” Haley said.

Haley’s nomination read, “Ms. Haley is an asset to B-P! Her work with the Unified Sports program has been a wonderful achievement for the district. In addition to this, her work with the Broadalbin Youth Commission is a great benefit to our community. Ms. Haley works tirelessly to give our kids a great school experience.”

Haley said she was honored to be named MVP for the month of June. She says she has truly enjoyed her work with the district and appreciates the support from district leaders and her peers.

“B-P is truly a special place, filled with endless opportunities for our students,” Haley said. “Together, we are fostering a sense of belonging for everyone in our community!”

Brittny Harding, BPES administrative assistant

Brittny Harding is finishing her first year at Broadalbin-Perth Elementary School. She works as an administrative assistant in the main office, which gives her the chance to interact with all students and staff in the school, as well as families. She enjoys her role, as it allows her “to put a smile on someone’s face or make someone’s day a little easier.”

“I’m so thankful to be a part of the B-P family,” Harding said. “It’s easy to remain positive and happy when you know you’re where you’re meant to be, doing what you’re called to do. Every day you have a choice of where you will focus your energy.”

Harding was nominated by BPES SRO Nicole Buckley, who wrote, “Brittny always brings happy energy to the main office. She constantly has a smile on her face and is kind to everyone. Being a new mom of three, she does not let the lack of sleep stop her from having a good day in the office. She is truly an all-around amazing person.”

Harding is also a district parent, as her daughter just finished the pre-K program at BPES. She enjoys having the chance to see her daughter throughout the day.  

“Knowing that your child is in good hands and in an environment that fosters growth and positivity for students while they’re away from home is a great feeling,” Harding said. “It’s what I’d want for my children and what all the students at B-P deserve.”  

Each month, two district employees are recognized through Broadalbin-Perth's MVP program. Each winner receives a B-P Yeti mug. Nominations can come from any member of the school community and all nominations should be submitted online. The deadline to nominate a B-P employee for the September MVP award is Thursday, Sept. 5.
