Congratulations to Tyronne Lunkins, the first Above & Beyond award winner for the new school year. Lunkins is a special education paraprofessional and has been at Randolph Elementary School for the past 14 years. He also coaches a football team made up of Randolph students. Lisa Roush, who nominated Lunkins said, “He is a role model for our 4th and 5th grade students and uses his life experiences to help our students realize what a gift an education is and how much can be accomplished in life when you have one.”
