Nisa Lyons, Program Assistant for External Business Services, has been given an Excellence in Education Award by the El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE). Nisa was shocked and expressed, “This accolade humbles me, and I so appreciate being recognized by my peers. My role at EDCOE has allowed me to interact with many programs and school districts, and I truly believe this award reflects all of us. I am thankful to work with such great people – you are the real stars!” 

With over 20 years of experience in various administrative positions, including nine years at EDCOE, Lyons has honed her organizational and multitasking abilities to excel in roles that demand accuracy, attention to detail, and efficiency. Lyons' solid understanding of EDCOE's organization, programs, and school districts has made her an excellent resource for the department and the districts they serve in the county. She is a clear communicator and has improved multiple processes at EDCOE. 

Aside from her professional experience, Lyons maintains a great sense of humor and weaves that masterfully with a warm, friendly, calm, and professional demeanor. She is dedicated to her family and has volunteered in several capacities at each school her children have attended, including serving as an elected representative for the Indian Creek School Site Council, Mother Lode Union School District's LCAP Parent Advisory Group, and as an active member of the Indian Creek School PTA/Parent Club. Lyons also volunteers at various Union Mine High School extracurricular events, was a Girl Scouts of America Troop Co-Leader, and a Friends of the Library member at the El Dorado County Library.

Dr. Ed Manansala, El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools, noted, “Nisa is an exemplary administrative professional who leads by example. This award acknowledges her crucial contributions to ensuring our External Business Services team can support our school districts at the highest level. Congratulations, Nisa, and thank you for your dedication.”
