Willie Demby and Staniesha Jones, Employees of the Month for November, are members of the HISD Police Department who serve as campus officers at Yates High School. In what may well be a first for the district, they were nominated and selected for recognition together, as they serve as partners on the force and function as a team.

“Officers Demby and Jones definitely work well together,” said Sergeant Antony Davis. “They are always visible out in the hall, interacting with staff and students. Establishing that rapport is critical to the success they have, and the level of trust people have in them. It is impossible to nominate one without the other.”
