Villa Park High School Assistant Principal Julie Lucas recognized Shannon Salonga for exemplifying the Orange Unified EDGE Focus Area 3.0 - Genuine Wellness and Safety - and the Core Value of Equity.
She had this to say about Shannon:
Shannon is a highly sensitive and empathic staff member who helps all students at Villa Park High who are in crisis or in need of social/emotional support. She runs meaningful counseling groups and provides a safe sounding board for our students at Villa Park who are in the need of crisis intervention, and drop in services. She is a resource to our staff and puts the students social emotional needs at the forefront of her daily practices!
