Exceptional receptionist-Gresham recognized as school-related employee of the year

Mayo — Lafayette High School’s Lucie Gresham was recognized as the school-related employee of the year on Jan. 29. She was congratulated by co-workers, staff and Lafayette County School Superintendent Robbie Edwards. LHS Principal Stewart Hancock gave her a bouquet of flowers and told her the great news.

She said she had no idea she would win, but did know she was entered and was up against some fierce competition. She posed for a few pictures and insisted some of them be with her front office “ladies”.

Gresham has been the school receptionist for about five years and prior to that, worked as an aide in their ESE department.

“Probably the thing that stands out the most about Lucie Gresham is her positive attitude and she’s always energetic,” said Hancock. “You can’t help if you’re around her for that to bleed off on you.”

He said she has a great love for kids and is always mentoring them and doing everything she can to best prepare them for their life’s journey. She is a Lafayette County School’s soccer coach and also handles the school’s Youth Crime Watch program.

“Wherever she’s needed, whether it’s under her job title or not, she’s always willing to jump in there and help,” said Hancock.

He said how important it was for someone working in the front office in case someone was out that day.

“You don’t go and hire a substitute,” said Hancock. “Everyone just has to pick up the slack and she’s great about doing that.”

He said she was very deserving of the recognition and concluded saying, “You can’t ask for a better person to work with.”
