Mrs. Fiorica has been at Sunrise Elementary since the school opened in 1992.  Her dedication and commitment is apparent in her actions, organizing school family events, planning student/teacher recognition activities, taking a lead role in fundraising opportunities and participating on the School Advisory Committee.  "Mrs. Fiorica is an unsung hero in our school," stated Principal Jim Bishop in a letter of recommendation.  "I must say that most of our teachers and parents don't realize the tremendous impact that she has each day."

Described as a vital member of the Sunrise family, Mrs. Fiorica leads by example and is always a team player.  She has worked hard to build relationships and her efforts have created a caring and more productive team.  In her application packet, Mrs. Fiorica stated, "My heart guides me through each day as I work with our staff, students and families.  I always want people to know that they are valued, appreciated and that I care about them."

The Superintendent's Outstanding Achievement Award is co-sponsored annually by FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools and Volusia County Schools.  It was initiated to honor support staff members who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, teamwork, cooperation and innovation in their jobs.
