JCPS names 2019 School Bookkeeper of the Year

Kristine Solomon from West Clayton Elementary School was named this year’s School Bookkeeper of the Year at a special ceremony on Tuesday, April 30th.

This is the first year Johnston County Public Schools has named a School Bookkeeper of the Year and the district plans to continue the event for years to come. The Internal Audit Department and Finance Department staff members nominated candidates for the recognition.

The Internal Audit Department hosted the special presentation with district leaders to recognize Solomon for her positive attitude, proficiency, willingness to help others, strong work ethic, and dedication to the vision of our district.

Each school bookkeeper was presented with a certificate of appreciation for their service in these vital positions at the ceremony.

“This was a difficult decision since there are many deserving candidates in our district,” said JCPS Internal Auditor Tracy Stubblefield. “We are very excited to show our sincere appreciation to this hard-working group of staff members.”

School Bookkeepers are responsible for performing general ledger accounting and payroll duties at each school, among many other responsibilities.
