VCS Announces Superintendent’s Outstanding Achievement Award Winner


The School District of Volusia County and FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools named Mary Temarantz, information systems analyst for Volusia Online Learning, as the 2019 Superintendent's Outstanding Achievement Award winner (see photos below and attached).

Ms. Temarantz is described in a letter of recommendation from J. Suzy Peterson as making the school a better place through her "work ethic, selflessness and student- first mentality." With 21 years of experience with Volusia County Schools, Ms. Temarantz is a role model for others as she always has student success at the forefront of her decision making.

The Superintendent's Outstanding Achievement Award is co-sponsored annually by FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools and Volusia County Schools. It was initiated to honor support staff members who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, teamwork, cooperation and innovation in their jobs.
