Posted by Communications on 8/11/2016

The District’s Support Staff Employee of the Year is David Caddell, a senior security assistant at Camelback. The award was presented at the Opening of Schools Convocation, August 2. He has been at Camelback for 12 years, but he has actually been with the District for 28 years. A graduate of North High, he worked with our visually impaired students in Community Based Training(CBT) classes. His value to Camelback belies his title. Many on his campus refer to him as the “go-to Guy,” helping teachers move classrooms, grabbing snacks for a class or club, or just being the one person the students know and can trust. He prides himself on knowing every student. His formula for success is simple, says his administration- build relationships, and treat people with respect. David also places a value on holding students accountable to high standards.   He has volunteered to help coach football, girls basketball, baseball and after-school weight-lifting. Now the number two security person at his school, Chis colleagues say he consistently demonstrates a whatever-it-takes attitude in making sure the campus and students are safe and well-cared for.
