Transportation department names Leeth as ‘Staff Member of the Year’
MADISON – Debbie Leeth has earned the honor of “Staff Member of the Year” for the Transportation Department of Madison City Schools.
Leeth works as administrative assistant and office manager for the department. “I was surprised and very humbled,” Leeth said about discovering that she had received the award.
“Since my family and I moved to Huntsville in 2001, I have worked for two school systems. Huntsville City and Madison City,” Leeth said. “I started out as an office aide in an elementary school and worked my way up to my current position as Office Manager for the Madison City Schools Transportation Department.”
In her opinion, today’s teenagers “are smart, passionate, more inclusive and willing to volunteer for causes that are important to them.”
Debbie and her husband Marty have been married for 34 years. “Marty recently retired from the FBI after almost 30 years and currently works for a private contractor. We have two adult sons, Zach and Luke. One lives in upstate New York, and the other son lives in Birmingham. I have one grandson and another one on the way,” she said.
Debbie is actively involved with her church, Cove United Methodist Church. “I currently serve on our international missions board. I have served in various roles during the last 18 years that I have been a member there. My favorite experience has been serving as a leader of a small group of girls for seven years.”
“I am an avid gardener and cook,” she said. “I love spending time with my family — especially my new grandson!”
The MCS Transportation Department’s location is 217 Westchester Drive in Madison.
