Solehi Board Celebrates Being 'Top Valley Workplace'
Southern Lehigh Superintendent Leah Christman ended Monday night's meeting of the Southern Lehigh School Board by presenting the board with a cake in honor of the district being named a top place to work recently.
If the fact that Southern Lehigh Superintendent of Schools Leah Christman served cake to the Solehi School Board at the end of Monday night's meeting seems a bit unusual, that's because Southern Lehigh is an unusual school district.
Indeed, Southern Lehigh is the only school district to earn a place on The Morning Call's 2013 list of top Lehigh Valley workplaces -- a distinction that makes Christman quite proud.
All week long, she explained, while presenting the cake to the board, a similar cake -- displaying the Top Lehigh Valley Workplace logo -- was enjoyed in each building in the district. And, because the board is a big part of making Solehi such a special place to work, Christman felt that the board deserved a slice of celebratory cake too.
In a statement issued by Christman to Patch earlier this month in announing Solehi's place on the Top Workplaces list, she explained that the evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from an employee survey sponsored by The Call and Workplace Dynamics completed by many Solehi staff members in 2012.
