Announcing the 2016-17
ESU #1 Employee of the Year

Heather Barron-Galvan


On Feb. 10, 2017, Educational Service Unit #1 Special Education Director Stuart Clark presented Heather Barron-Galvan with the 2016-17 ESU #1 Employee of the Year award during an all-staff meeting at Wayne State College.

Heather, a resident of Yankton, South Dakota, has been employed at ESU #1 since 2009. She is a school psychologist who has worked in schools throughout Knox County. She was nominated by her peers because she is thoughtful and does an excellent job of making sure people feel loved and appreciated. Her warmth and dedication to making employees feel like valued members and individuals are phenomenal. She is always upbeat, and her efforts are enormous and commendable. ESU #1 is happy to award this year’s Employee of the Year to her. 

The Employee of the Year award is in honor of Georgia McQuistan, a former ESU #1 employee who passed away in 1987.
