Matt Lloyd, Bookkeeper at Eagle Mountain Magnet Elementary School, was named Monday as the October recipient of the “Citizens Bank Above & Beyond Award” for the Batesville School District.
Citizens Bank and the School District started the Above & Beyond program in 2012 to recognize staff members for exceptional service to students, parents, their school, peers and the district.
Anyone school employee may be nominated by their peers. Each month’s recipient is selected from the nominations and announced at a School Board meeting. The award includes a certificate from the Board, and a $25 gift card and 20-ounce YETI tumbler from Citizens Bank.
Virtually all of the nominations for “Mr. Matt” by staff members at West Magnet mentioned his helpfulness, regardless what needs to be done. Other direct comments included:
- “Mr. Matt is the definition of ‘Above & Beyond.’ Whether he is volunteering to help students, plan field trips, help with money, or order whatever anyone needs, he is always helping.”
- “Wow. Matt does an awesome job at everything. Most trips are successful due to all of his hard work.”
- “He is always thinking what is best for students, staff, parents and the school itself.”
“Mr. Matt makes our school a better place!”
