Westgate Earns First Westside Royalty Cup

Posted September 16, 2019

Westgate Elementary is the first winner of the Westside Royalty Cup, a new honor highlighting staff members, departments, and schools who work to make students, families and coworkers feel like royalty at Westside.

Tonya Gordon, Westgate 3rd Grade Teacher, earned this honor for her school. Fellow teacher Mary Morris nominated Gordon for the honor, writing the following:

Superintendent Dr. Mike Lucas and Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dr. Enid Schonewise surprised Gordon with the honor this month. Westgate now holds the Royalty Cup for the month of September, and all Westgate staff are awarded a pizza lunch to celebrate their efforts, thanks to a grant from the Westside Foundation.

“Tonya is a very talented member of our Westgate team and well deserving!” said Principal Amanda Moon. “We are excited for her to be surprised with this honor. Our entire Westgate team is excited!”

Gordon and Moon will also be honored by the Westside Board of Education on September 16.
