A paraeducator who not only helped the special education students she was assigned to, but other students in the classroom as well, was named USD-379’s Employee of the Year at Thursday’s “Expect Success” assembly that marked the end of the school year.

Heike Bybee, a paraeducator at CCCHS, embodies the two goals of CCCHS, which are to send students down the right path for their future and principal Bud Young’s  simple anthem of “Same rope, same direction,” said Carla Crutcher, one of two teachers nominating Bybee for Employee of the Year.
