Shirley Hilliard was hired by Bonsall Union School District in 1991 originally as a Noon Duty. Over the next decade, Shirley honed her skills in site-based positions as a Special Education Paraprofessional (formerly known as Instructional Aide) and Health Clerk, as well as serving in the Migrant Education, Food Services, and Special Education departments before assuming the role of Payroll Technician in 2006. Since then Shirley has added benefit administration, State and federal reporting, and a variety of other business office responsibilities to her repertoire. Shirley interacts with every employee in the District and does so with respect and patience. She is always accessible and willing to stop what she is doing to help a co-worker, parent, or student with their immediate need. Shirley possesses a wealth of information and is valued for the ease and efficiency she models at the district office. Bonsall Unified is delighted to honor Shirley Hilliard as the 2017 Classified Employee of the Year.
