Here is the nomination Santiago received from her co-worker:

“Stacy, a dedicated mother and school administrator in our community, is an integral part of the North Florida School of Special Education. In addition to her duties as our Director of Family and Student Activities, she spearheads the theater group and is actively involved in Civitan leadership. Through her role in Civitan, she imparts the value of community service and leadership to students. Stacy recently wrapped up a theater production where she led a group of NFSSE students in an amazing performance of The Little Mermaid. Always wearing a cheerful smile, Stacy balances her responsibilities as a mother with commendable dedication. Her contributions have earned her widespread admiration and affection within our NFSSE staff and family members. We are so fortunate to have her as part of our family!”
