BEND, OR -- For the third straight year, a Bend-La Pine Schools nurse has been honored by the state. Margo McDonald has been named the Oregon School Nurse of the Year by the Oregon School Nurses Association. She's worked for the district for 19 years, primarily serving students at Juniper Elementary and Pilot Butte Middle School, this year. She's also worked at Buckingham Elementary for 16 years and Tamarack for 12 years. 

 

McDonald says she especially likes working with special needs kids, taking a holistic approach to each patient and considering the child's family and community as part of their treatment. She plans to leave the district May first, to take a job as a nurse educator at a military base in Italy.

 

Previous Bend-La Pine Schools winners include Connie Hoffstetter and Laura Brown in 2016 and 2017.
