With a new school year comes new opportunities, especially for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schools’ Head of Facility, Eduardo Suarez, who earned the Employee of the Year title. At MSD, the Employee of the Year opportunity is highly coveted, as it demonstrates the staff and faculty’s tireless commitment to their jobs. 

Suarez has been an employee at MSD for ten years. Not only does he work harder than the day before each day, he is also well loved around the school by not only his fellow peers, but the students as well. 

“He constantly puts everyone else first and loves our school, students and staff so much and that shows in everything that he does,” MSD Principal Michelle Kefford said.

Suarez deals with the maintenance of the school and environment. Especially in times of need such as the COVID-19 pandemic, his job is crucial to the school. 

Suarez was nominated by Culinary Arts teacher Ashley Kurth. Unfortunately, Kurth and Suarez were both unreachable for comment. 

“[Suarez is] an incredible employee but an even more incredible man,” Kefford said. “His peers recognized the job he does and wanted to ensure he was recognized.”

Kefford has gotten to know Suarez on a personal level and recognizes that this title was well deserved. 

“I speak with Mr. Suarez multiple times a day and have gotten to know him very well,” Kefford said.

Kefford knows that all of the employees at MSD deserve to receive this title, but it was clear that Suarez was most deserving this year due to his restless dedication.

“We have so many amazing staff members, it’s impossible to pick just one,” Kefford said. “It is so important to recognize our amazing staff for the job they do each and every day.”

Suarez’s new awarding title helps the school recognize the individuality and charisma he adds to the environment.
