Wednesday afternoon the Conrad school district held their annual staff and employee recognition program.
This year marked the 14th anniversary of the event and while normally held in the multi-purpose room at Meadowlark School, the event was scheduled into the new auditorium at Conrad High School.
The employee recognition program was just the second event to be put on in a facility that in a word is, incredible.
Conrad School Board Chairman Jan Carter opened the ceremony with a short welcome and said to the audience, “All of you should give yourself a pat on the back for all you do.”
