Marc McCartney, Shoreline Schools
Support Person of the Year

Marc McCartney, theater manager/technician and district moving coordinator, has been selected as the 2014 Shoreline Schools Support Person of the Year. 

Marc will be honored at a reception at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 10 in the Shoreline Center lobby as the District kicks off Support Staff Appreciation Week. The community is invited.

“Marc is a man with an incredible work ethic,” his nomination read in part. “As a teacher, theater technician and recently the coordinator of the move into two new high schools, Marc sets a standard for both students and staff.”

Marc has worked for the District for more than 25 years and is a graduate of Shorewood High School. He has managed the Shorecrest theater for many years, now adding the new facility at Shorewood to his duties as well. He is also a teacher of theater lighting and set design.

“What most people do not see is the professional instruction given by Marc to our students who coordinate every light, curtain, microphone and need of our actors and musicians on stage. None of this would happen at this level of excellence if it weren’t for Marc’s teaching,” the nomination continued.

Over the past two years Marc has taken on the responsibility of coordinating the successful moves of both high school staffs into their new buildings.

“(We) can’t begin to express how many endless and late night hours Marc has given to staff, vendors, construction workers and central office personnel to make these massive moves a success.”

The Support Person of the Year award has been made annually since 1998 and is selected by a committee of staff and community members from nominations received from around the District. The recipient also receives a professional development grant from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation.
