Congratulations to Julie Kizzar for being named a top finalist for the 2023 Kansas School Social Worker of the Year Award. Julie will receive a complimentary 1-year membership to the Kansas School Social Workers Association (KSSWA). 

KSSWA congratulated Julie on her recognition. "As the state association that supports Kansas school social workers, by advocating at the local, state, and national levels, KSSWA is so proud to have you as a shining representation of what we stand for through your provided services."

Julie has been with Seaman School District since 1997 and continues to support school social work not only in our district but throughout the state. She has been a field instructor for Washburn University and University of Kansas students, mentor for incoming social workers in USD 345, and volunteers for many committees.

"Without a doubt, Julie Kizzar enriches the lives of our students and staff," said SHS counselor Dawna Ross. "Her willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty makes her an invaluable member of our team. She is essential to the overall well-bing of our school and I truly appreciate all that she does at SHS."
