Principal Named GCS Employee of the Month
Noel Keener serves staff and students at Northeast High School

Brilliantly smart and great at hiring good people. These are the words used to describe Noel Keener, principal at Northeast High, who yesterday was named the February GCS employee of the month.

Keener was nominated by former GCS teacher and current substitute teacher, Mark Scott, who wrote, “Mrs. Keener is intelligent, has hired a great staff, is a superb leader, can be seen in the hallways of the school and is approachable. Her demeanor has trickled down to the entire staff and that has apparently trickled down to the students because, as a whole, they seem to be as good as any student body I have worked within the public setting.”

Scott praised not only Keener, but the atmosphere at Northeast High as a whole. He wrote, “Over the years I have subbed, taught or coached at between 15 and 20 schools and have liked all of them, but the feel at NE is awesome. Teachers and staff everywhere are typically nice, but EVERY staff member is unbelievably courteous and kind at NEG. When I mentioned this to a staff member, they said it starts from the top with Principal Keener. He said, “She is not only brilliantly smart, but is great at hiring good people.”
