WAITSFIELD — Clayton S. Wetzel III, Waitsfield Elementary School’s nurse, has been selected as the Vermont school nurse of the year. Annually, the Vermont State School Nurses’ Association recognizes a school nurse for outstanding achievement and service.
“In addition to his strong daily practice, Clayton serves as a leader for our school and district, representing us on our district’s school health advisory council, furthering community health through liaisons with outside parties from dentists to psychologists, and helping to draft work around health and wellness for our district,” said school Principal Kaiya Korb.
Wetzel began working at Waitsfield Elementary in 2012, starting in a part-time position/job share position, while also working in several other neighboring schools. He took over full time in the fall of 2014.
