Adelle Edwards

District Office

"This year's open enrollment went very well and was well received by the district employees. This would not have been possible without the hard work of Mrs. Adelle Edwards. Her attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile with each employee allowed us to avert many issues in processing. Without her willingness to step up, the project would not have been as successful. Specifically, she scheduled purposeful meetings, attended all available training, distributed updates to stakeholders, and continued to provide personable customer service with each staff member. Mrs. Edwards even held follow up meetings with staff members who needed clarity on open enrollment. Mrs. Edward's hard work and dedication is a great asset to Allendale County Schools."

Darren Cook

District Office

"Mr. Darren Cook is the Allendale County School District's network administrator. This year Mr. Cook has worked diligently to implement systems to improve network security and availability.  One of the most useful systems has been the network monitoring solution which allows us to monitor network traffic and infrastructure outages.  It was Mr. Cooks' monitoring of the network at night and on the weekend that helped us to recognize our recent cyber-incident.  It was also his quick response to information that help to minimize and contain the threat.  He is continuing to work on network improvements to move Allendale Forward!"
