FCPS’s Langdon named 2017 Education Support Professional of the Year by KEA

The Kentucky Education Association has selected Frankie Langdon, a Media Services technician in FCPS, as its 2017 Education Support Professional of the Year.

She received the award and a $1,000 cash prize during the KEA’s delegate assembly in Louisville; she can also attend next spring’s national conference at no expense.

In a voluntary role, Langdon serves as president of the Fayette County Education Support Professionals Association, which advocates for classified employees throughout Fayette County Public Schools.

“It takes all of us to make the educational wheels turn. As ESPs, we are partnering with our school district and its leadership for positive change daily,” Landon said, noting, “Every student is one caring adult away from being a success story.”

Superintendent Manny Caulk commended Langdon on the statewide recognition from KEA.

“Her leadership and partnership have greatly improved our organizational culture and set us on a course for excellence,” he said.

Langdon has been with FCPS for about 22 years. After starting out as a volunteer at her children’s elementary school, she worked as a paraeducator for seven years at two schools.

She has spent the past 15 years supporting school librarians and the district’s Teacher Resource Center.

“Our librarians have such a unique set of specialized skills for the success of students, and our role preparing their materials and computer data management allows them to spend more time with their students,” she said.
