This group of women was recognized for their diligent work in the business department. In payroll and benefits, they have to have hard conversations at times, explaining to a disappointed employee why that extra duty payment they were counting on wasn’t on their paycheck this time or counseling a grieving widow on her next steps to take. The ladies in purchasing and accounts payable take a need from a desperate phone call, to requisition, to check at a moment's notice. They not only make sure district needs are met but also anticipate unmet needs. They handle all of these situations with grace and compassion. District administrators say these four ladies are the soldiers that keep AISD running. There really is nothing that the district does that isn’t supported by them in one way or another. Anna ISD does its job well because they do their jobs well.
