Denise McLenon, ConVal’s administrative assistant to human resources, was named Office Professional of the Year by the New Hampshire Association of Educational Office Professionals. She received the award at NHAEOP’s 70th annual Edith E. Hammond Conference May 4 in North Conway.

The award recognizes the office professional who displays initiative and creativity, demonstrates exceptional skill and dedication, earns respect and admiration of colleagues and the community and displays exemplary leadership abilities through participation in district and community activities.

McLenon has served in multiple administrative capacities within the ConVal district for more than 30 years, including curriculum administrative assistant, executive administrative assistant to the assistant superintendent and executive administrative assistant to the superintendent. She also has served numerous roles within NHAEOP.

“Denise served the staff, students and community with respect and care,” Brenda Marschock, executive administrative assistant to Superintendent Kimberly Rizzo Saunders, wrote in her nomination. “Her years in the district, since 1988, have provided her a wealth of information that has benefited us all.”

Marshock’s nomination was supported by other current and former district employees.

“What makes Denise stand out from others is her initiative and ‘above and beyond’ approach to communication, learning, teamwork, compassion, overall desire to make things better and anticipation,” stated Tim Markley, retired director of human resources.

Nominators also highlighted her teamwork and ability to bring fellow office professionals together to ensure they feel they are part of a team.

“Denise is the glue that holds our office operations together. This award is a fitting tribute to her skill and professionalism throughout her career,” Rizzo Saunders stated. “As importantly, Denise makes everyone she comes in contact with feel like they are part of the ConVal family. We are incredibly proud of her for receiving this honor.”
