RIVERBANK SCHOOL DISTRICT HONOREE: Each year the Association of California School Administrators honors one person for outstanding contributions and achievements in the field of human resources. This year, that award went to Barbara Cortese. She has been with Riverbank Unified School District since 1989. "She is humble, modest and caring and highly valued by her colleagues as someone they can trust, depend on for advice, and turn to for information," Superintendent Joseph Galindo said. Cortese is the district's director of human resources.
