“No staff member works alone in providing the best possible guidance for their participants, they work cooperatively to coordinate services across the program. With that being said, there are Case Managers and coordinators who go above and beyond for their participants, exemplifying outstanding commitment and achievement in the practice of customer service. The FCDP recognizes these staff members who shine as true examples of what a FCDP staff member embodies.” Ashley Rodriguez from the Florida Department of Education recognized Luz Guerrero-Arias at the 2021 Virtual State Conference as Staff Member of the year for the State of Florida. Luz has been the Program Director for Putnam County’s Farmworker Career Development Program since 2020. She is a former teacher at Middleton Burney Elementary School where she was recognized as Teacher of the Year. We are so proud of Luz and of her deserved recognition! #ProudtobePCSD

PCSD Human Resources staff have been spreading some cheer across Putnam, Clay, Flagler and Volusia Counties by delivering signs to our Employee of the Year nominees. (Although there were a couple of roads that seemed a bit troublesome, nothing was going to stop this mission!) Many of the signs were delivered while the employees were at work but there were a few times they were caught in action. What an amazing group of honorees! #proudtobepcsd #shapingthefuture #pcsdhrrocks
