September WAVE Outstanding Work award

The September WOW Award was given to Francine Galea in recognition of her work in the Lake Havasu Career Center. She is the first face students see when entering the building and she always greets them with a smile. Fran has a contagious, positive attitude and outlook on life. This flows into every task she takes on. Fran helps with concurrent classes, comes up with marketing strategies for getting students involved with WAVE, sets up our state and industry certification testing and helps promote all WAVE opportunities. Fran is more than a smiling face in the career center, she truly makes a difference in the lives of students and anyone who comes into contact with her. Thank you for being a part of the LHHS and WAVE team. We appreciate your dedication and support!
