Heritage votes for Thania Chacon as top staffer

MADISON – When Thania Chacon is on the job, she strives to constantly improve the activities that she carries out . . . always seeking excellence. Her peers at Heritage Elementary School have honored Chacon as the “2024 Staff Member of the Year.”

She believes that by continuously working that she can achieve her goals and make a significant contribution to the school.

The 2023-2024 school year “was a difficult one due to the lack of custodians. However, my commitment and responsibility to maintain the school facilities was the main driving force to continue working every day alongside the excellent teachers and staff that characterizes Heritage Elementary,” Chacon said.

Chacon joined the staff at Heritage when she started working at Madison City Schools in May 2020. Previously, she lived in Miami, Fla. and worked in the areas of industrial maintenance and mechanical maintenance for Gatm Solutions from 2015 to 2019.

During her time with MCS, she worked as school custodian at James Clemens High School from 2020 to 2022. She then transferred to Heritage and has been on staff there for the last two years.

Chacon is originally from Venezuela. She graduated from the University of Tachira – Venezuela with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. “I have experience in mechanical maintenance, industrial service, budget management and general services for fuel plants,” she said.

Her husband, Melvin Rojas, works as a communication technician. Their son, Gabriel Rojas, is a student at Liberty Middle School.

When she is away from the Heritage campus, Chacon is a devoted fan of reading, planting flowers and listening to music.
