EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
SOUTH RIVER HIGH SCHOOL
We recognize an employee in our school system who in one man we find someone who works hard, wants to help others, is a positive influence on both students and staff, and always conducts himself with professionalism and dignity.
Tim Williams, Student Advocate at South River High School, is pressed into many roles in his position. At times, Tim is the person a child needs to just talk to. The school’s administration utilizes Mr. Williams as the “go-to” guy when it involves checking something out, perhaps locating a student or even asking him what he knows about a situation. Tim seems to know more about what is going on in the school than any other employee.
Mr. Williams find the most joy in his life when he is helping others. Anything you ask of Tim, he is more than willing to do. Tim is the employee who sits in the classroom of a teacher who suspects there may be a troublesome situation developing between two or more students. He is the fellow who will meet a staff member at an auto service station at 6:00 a.m. to make sure that staff member arrives to work on time. He’s the one who takes on the administrative duty of welcoming the buses and faculty into the building each morning at 6:30 a.m. And he’s the one who has taken on the duty of assisting the AP scholars with their student seminar by gathering books and being responsible for their class period.
Tim, more so than anyone else at South River, makes the school a more positive place, as each day he goes above and beyond his job of student advocate. Students in the school are extremely comfortable going to him with any problems that arise academically or personally. Teachers in the school are extremely comfortable going to Tim for assistance, as they know he’ll get the job done. Not only does Tim perform his advocate position duties flawlessly, he completes out of school duties like monitoring school dances and running Saturday school with the administrators. Tim is a three season coach at South River and assists the athletic department in any way. He coaches Boys Soccer, Girls Basketball and Softball. He is a member of various athletic committees and is a major force in the Edgewater community as the result of his involvement with his church and the recreation and parks community.
Tim Williams – Your character is second to none as you positively influence the lives of 2200 students at South River High. Whether it is through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, coaching sports, or merely being a friendly face in the cafeteria, your presence is always felt in the school. So for these reasons and more the Board of Education is honored to recognize you Employee of the Month for December 2016. Congratulations!
