Three employees of District 191 have been selected as Employees of the Year for 2013.

Sherry Gilbertson, an educational assistant from Vista View Elementary School, Lori Huberty, a food service employee at Metcalf Junior High in Burnsville, and Myron Shuur, a districtwide maintenance worker, were recognized.

The three were nominated by co-workers and chosen for their job performance, attitude and positive influence on those they interact with daily.

Cynthia Amoroso was chosen as District 191’s new assistant superintendent, and her selection was approved by the school board Thursday night.

Amoroso was picked from a pool of candidates following three rounds of interviews.

She has held several positions with Mankato Area Public Schools, including as an elementary and high school teacher, an assistant principal and a reading coordinator. Most recently, she’s been the Mankato district’s director of curriculum and instruction for more than a decade.

She will replace Chris Lindholm in the assistant superintendent position beginning July 1.

Proceeds will go directly to supporting the Blazettes during the coming school year. The team has a tradition of being competitive at the state level, having won 10 state championships. In 2012-13, they placed third in Minnesota.
