Raelene Crump, Office Manager at Stukey Elementary

>>Watch a video of Raelene's surprise announcement

Raelene Crump has been the Office Manager at Stukey Elementary for more than 20 years and has made an incredible impact. She received 10 different nominations for this award this year and each one gushed about how Raelene consistently goes above and beyond for her school and community! Nearly all of the nominations included stories that exemplified Raelene’s kindness, willingness to help and commitment to the work she does. She knows every student and parent by name, strength and need, and makes the time to listen to their stories, their needs and their celebrations. Additionally, she is always willing to help her colleagues by assisting with printing and records requests, attending after school events like choir concerts and PTO meetings, and answering any and all questions they may have. 

In addition to her normal office manager duties, Raelene manages fundraising events, provides resources for the community and even designed a new staff lounge. She single handedly manages the fundraising partnership with the Colorado Rockies where she secures discounted tickets and a portion of ticket sales goes back to Stukey. She also created Stukey t-shirts as a fundraiser and for a way for students to show school spirit. This year, Stukey was without a Family Liaison so Raelene stepped into that role by filling the school’s Resource closet with diapers, food, clothing and other essentials for families in need. Finally, Raelene took her own time to buy materials and supplies to outfit a newly designed staff lounge and also helped design a new library at Stukey. 

Raelene’s extraordinary care and dedication builds a strong foundation for students, parents and staff at Stukey. Her colleagues describe her as the “second mother” to all the students, a “master of all trades,” a “shero,” a “legend” and now she can add Classified Employee of the Year to that list.
