Grab a tissue, this one’s a tear-jerker.
OPS shared this video entitled “Why We Come to Work Every Day” at faculty/staff Opening Day last Tuesday. “In light of how heartbreaking the last few months in our country have been, OPS wants to recognize the efforts of some of our community partners who OPS works with every day like the Owensboro Police Department, NAACP, Human Relations Commission and the Neblett Center,” explained Dave Kirk, OPS Public Information Officer.
“I cannot think of a better way to start the school year than to celebrate our diversity, partnerships and all things that make OPS a special place to work and to attend school,” said Dr. Nick Brake, OPS Superintendent. “OPD, the NAACP, Human Relations Commission and Neblett Center work extremely hard together to serve and protect the rights of our students and staff. We are not without our problems, but for the most part, we are fortunate to not see the things we are witnessing around the country.”
