We are very proud to share that Scott Staub is a recipient of the LHRIC TELL Award. TELL stands for Transforming Education through Leading and Learning, and we can think of no better description for Scott’s many contributions to the district. Scott has been a member of the Lakeland family since 2005 and currently serves as the Instructional Coach for Technology as well as an Acting Assistant Principal at Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School. Scott is a team player who is always willing to step in and help, and he was especially instrumental in supporting teaching and learning during hybrid/remote instruction. Without complaint, he consistently goes above and beyond his job description to provide support to faculty and staff while keeping the needs of the students above all else. Congratulations Scott!
