Larry Shiver, June Employee of the Month for Wakulla County Schools, started his career with the Wakulla County School District in 2003 as the Operations Foreman at Wakulla Middle School.Prior to holding the foreman position at WMS, Mr. Shiver was the shop foreman at Peavy and Sons Construction.
Shiver moved to Wakulla County to be closer to his grandchildren. When he heard there was an open position at Wakulla Middle School, he applied, interviewed, and was hired by Jay Wiggins. Shiver says he enjoys the social events like fishing tournaments, barbeques and cooking competitions among the faculty, and adds that he usually ends up doing the cooking at those events.
Shiver also states “What I like most about my job is the closeness of faculty and staff. We have great teachers, staff and administrators that are like a family. When I leave home every morning it’s like leaving one family and going to another. I also appreciate all of the support I get from my supervisor and the district staff.”
It is clear that Mr. Shiver embodies that family spirit among staff that he speaks of. According to his supervisor, Randy Bristol, “Mr. Shiver has always gone above and beyond what was required of him as Operations Foreman at Wakulla Middle School. Whether volunteering his time or performing his job duties, Mr. Shiver always puts the best interest of the school first. His connection to other agencies has been an asset to the school in acquiring equipment and furnishings for the school. Mr. Shiver is a valuable employee and is deserving of the Employee of the Month award. It has been a pleasure to work with him over the years and I look forward to working with him in the future.”
