Employee of the Month



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Lisa Knell

When the staff of Severna Park High School were asked to give specific feedback to describe why she deserved this award, the accolades came pouring in…

She “is willing to drop what she is doing to aid you in the middle of your crisis, because it might not be a huge problem for her to fix but she knows that anything that stops tech from working is a crisis for you.”

Ms. Germanos writes, “ Last year the Drama Department installed a screen in the Main Lobby, and it was particularly complicated. Many attempts were made to work with the subscription company and the IT Office at Central Office and finally it was successful, due in large part to her persistence and capability!”

Who is this awesome staff member they are talking about?  It’s Lisa Knell, Technology Support Technician at Severna Park High School.

Former Principal, Patrick Bathras, said, “Lisa continues to be an asset to the faculty/staff and students at SPHS. She is fantastic at her job, but more importantly she shows pure joy in carrying out all tasks. It is never a bother to Lisa for someone to ask her for help, and she always responds with “my pleasure.” Lisa consistently completes all tasks in a timely manner, which brings happiness to those in need. Lisa is highly organized, is extremely knowledgeable, is a hard worker and a team player.”

Lisa Knell, you are “simply the BEST!”  It was difficult to pick just ONE specific example of your AWESOMENESS. So, for these reasons and many more, the Board of Education recognizes you as the February 2023, Employee of the Month.
