January 2021 Employee of the Month Kevin ClevengerComputer Science teacher Kevin Clevenger from Blue Springs High School is our January Employee of the Month. Kevin has taught at Blue Springs High School for the past 15 years and has been instrumental in the implementation of Project Lead the Way across the country. He piloted three courses and served as a Computer Science Master Teacher where he provided Project Lead the Way Instructor training. In 2019 at the Project Lead the Way Summit, Kevin was named Outstanding in his field.

This year, Kevin supported a new virtual program in eSports at Blue Springs High School. His team grows weekly and has more than 60 enrolled participants. ESports gives students who may not have had any school-based activities in the past a new opportunity to get involved. Students on the team are gaining recognition from post-secondary institutions with potential at earning college scholarships.

When Kevin’s students were asked what they appreciate about him, they used these inspiring words: “Dedicated. Resourceful. Hard-working and always willing to find the answers to a student’s question.”

One student said of Kevin Clevenger, “Mr. Clevenger always finds ways to make what we learn in class relevant, and I feel that he is preparing us to be successful in the industry as soon as we leave high school. I think the thing I like about him most is that he can relate to every student in his classroom and really gets to know us and who we are.”

Congratulations to Kevin Clevenger, our January Employee of the Month.
