Sheri Wagner, Secretary to the Superintendent, Named "2021 Person of the Year"


The Board of Education for the Westchester Public Schools is very pleased to announce that Secretary to the Superintendent, Sheri Wagner, has been named as District 92½’s “Person of the Year” for 2021.  Mrs. Wagner will be honored at the annual Chamber of Commerce event, “Night at the Oscars,” on Saturday, March 26, 2022.


Mrs. Wagner has served our District and this community for 30 years. One of the nomination letters we received for Mrs. Wagner captured the impact she has had on all of us.  "Sheri's attention to detail and her dedication to the district makes our district a special jewel in the Western Suburbs and has created a positive school environment for teachers, students, staff, and community. She is the glue that holds our district together.” Her contributions to our district are invaluable and she truly deserves the designation of “Person of the Year.” 


We are also pleased to share with you the other candidates who were nominated and considered by the Board of Education for the “Person of the Year” award. Katherine Deters (Math Specialist WMS), Kathy Gisseler (Physical Education WMS), Brittany Orth (Math Specialist WIS) and the 

Transportation Department (Districtwide). We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to those who were nominated for “Person of the Year” and those that took the time to nominate them.  People working together on behalf of the district’s students are what make the Westchester Public Schools a special place to work and learn.
