Volunteer of the Month
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Stacey Nutile
Parent volunteers are a keystone in the the Anne Arundel Public Schools community. While our educators and staff members work tirelessly to ensure that all students have academic and experiential opportunities that will help them to excel in the present and future, our goals could not be fully realized without the enthusiasm and dedication of our volunteers.
Today, we are proud to celebrate a shining example of excellence in volunteerism, Ms. Stacey Nutile. Giving generously of her time and talents, Ms. Nutile has helped to bring music into the lives of Southern High School students, staff, and community members since 2011. Not only has she served as president of the school’s Music Booster club, but she has become a cherished presence and integral contributor to the school culture and climate.
Audra Wayland, Assistant Principal at Southern High School, shared that “Ms. Nutile made it her personal goal to raise $10,000 for Southern’s Music Department before her son graduates in 2018. Not only is Ms. Nutile working to raise money for the department, she is also supportive of a variety of school goals. Under her leadership, the Southern High School Music Boosters has donated money to support an electronic marquee, a new sound system for the auditorium, new guitars, and new pianos.” Ms. Nutile has also extended her commitment beyond the Music Boosters, working closely with the Southern High School Music Alumni Association and establishing a music scholarship for recent graduates.
Beyond her dedication to the music department, Ms. Nutile serves on the Prom Breakfast committee; maintains active membership in the Parent-Teacher-Student Organization; assists with the Student of the Month Breakfast; and organizes meetings, funding, and other volunteers in support of student activities and success.
Lead teacher Briana Gresko calls Ms. Nutile “an invaluable asset” who “regularly checks in” with teachers to inquire about how she and the Boosters club may be of service. Music teacher Brian Forte says “she is always the first to volunteer...and her experience and presence with the students is comforting to all.” Principal Kathy Feuerherd echoes the appreciation of her teachers as she notes that Ms. Nutile will be “sorely missed” when her youngest child graduates in the coming months.
Ms. Nutile, we thank you -- not only for the harmony that you’ve helped ring through the halls of Southern High School, but for your consistent commitment to the learning and growth of all of our students.
We are pleased to honor you as our Volunteer of the Month! Thank you for your service.
