Crystal Naff Named 2016 FCPS School Secretary of the Year
Congratulations to Catoctin High School secretary, Crystal Naff. During the June 8 Board of Education meeting, she was recognized as an outstanding member of the Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) support staff.
Naff has worked at Catoctin High since 2002. As the secretary to the principal, she supports the administrators at Catoctin. Her job also includes overseeing the front office staff and handling the finances for the school, as well as all of the clubs. Because she enjoys working directly with the students, she chose to add the responsibility of senior class co-advisor. She was previously the junior class advisor, whose responsibilities included setting up the prom and making sure that all students have a wonderful experience. As senior class advisor, Naff works with parents, vendors, and community members to make graduation an experience to remember.
Principal Bernard Quesada nominated Naff for the award. In his nomination he stated, “There is literally nothing that happens in our school without Crystal’s influence or help. Most importantly, she has used all of these positions to work and mentor children in our school. She makes an intentional point to get to know and work with students and their families. I, like all of the staff and students in our building, are better people for having worked with Crystal Naff.”
Nomination letters were also submitted from several students and staff at Catoctin High School. These letters testify to the professionalism, dedication to the job, and respect for others that is shown daily by Naff.
