Fargo Public Schools Names Support Staff of the Year

Posted: Updated:

It was an exciting moment for one district employee at Fargo South High School Wednesday morning. Rob Wilson was recognized by the entire south high student body as Support Staff Member of the Year. 

Wilson is a retired 30-year veteran of the Fargo Fire Department who works as the school's proctor. Friday's announcement came as a complete surprise to Wilson, who says he loves coming into his job every day.

"Well right now it's still sinking in but it's a very big surprise I mean I enjoy doing.. This is my retirement job enjoy doing what I'm doing and have a great time with the kids here," Wilson said. 

While with the Fargo Fire Department, Wilson was responsible for many of the Department's programs, including training, safety certification, and public activities. During his time with the Fire Department, he also worked with Fargo School District officials to create the District's hazardous materials and emergency evacuation protocols. All of these experiences make Wilson an outstanding District employee whose job responsibilities require him to interact with people, command respect, and on occasion deal with emergency situations.

Superintendent Jeff Schatz says Wilson's selection was also based on testimony from many others in the district who all share a similar impression of Wilson. They describe him with words like honor, compassionate, integrity-filled, kind, caring, trustworthy, positive, smiling, and mentor.

The district will also recognize the administrator and the teacher of the year in the coming weeks.
