We would like to recognize Mr. Chad Montgomery as the December Inspire Engage and Grow Employee of the Month. Chad is a humble individual who quietly provides leadership within our school and for its students. Chad is in charge of a newer program at Dayton High School in which he provides alternative instruction to students to assist them in graduating. He has been with this new program from day one and the program has grown and improved each year.
As well as being a leader in the school building, Chad is also our high school football coach. In Coach Montgomery’s program character matters! Chad makes sure that our players are excellent examples for our school both on and off the field. Chad works tirelessly to make a difference to our football players and their families. Chad also does a great job of monitoring athletic events in the winter and spring. One nomination mentioned how “Coach Montgomery is always there when needed! He is like my school dad!”
Another nomination stated, “Chad always goes above and beyond to keep his students on task and pushes them to ensure their success. He is such a hard worker and is always positive. Glad to have him in our building!” Students can share countless stories about how Chad was there for them when they were down and needed to be lifted up. He is a great example of someone who recognizes what needs to be done and does it. Chad Montgomery’s selfless dedication to Dayton High School, its staff, and its students deserves to be recognized. We are glad he is part of our team.
