Ennis School employees were awarded for their efforts

 Two Ennis School employees were awarded certifications during the monthly school board meeting Sept. 11.


Ginger Martello, Ennis School’s district clerk, completed an extensive professional certification program with the Montana Association of School Business Officials.


MASBO Director Denise Williams and President Lori Carey presented Martello with the certification. 


“We hope you and your community recognize how much your business manager does,” Carey said. “We think she’s a gem.” 


The program requires at least three years of experience, a letter of support from the superintendent, 120 hours of training, a test and another 180 hours of training. 


Th second certification went to the Ennis School’s head cook Tammy Wham. Montana School Nutrition Association audited Ennis Schools’ kitchen in February and was ranked among the top four schools in the state for their nutritious menu, scoring a 98 out of 100. The state average was a 70 out of 100. Wham was curious about the minor two-point reduction and asked to see the score sheet. She thought it could have been because a whole-grain option wasn’t available one of the days. 


They awarded Wham with a set of knives and certificate for her attention to nutrition in the Ennis Schools.
