Employee of the Season

Full time staff nominates seasonal and part-time staff that goes above and beyond their job duties. Administrative staff then votes on who should be chosen as the Employee of the Season. The employee is recognized by the Park Board of Commissioners and receives $50 along with a plaque placed at the Weiss Community Center.

Amanda Grossmayer

Amanda Grossmayer has worked for the park district since 2011. She has been an integral part of the Aquatic team as shown in her achievements at the pool and her rapid progression into the Aquatic coordinator position this past summer. She received the ‘Golden Guard’ award in 2013, which is the highest award given to a lifeguard for excelling in all aspects of their lifeguarding responsibilities, including professionalism and technical skills. This award is only given to the top 1% worldwide, so Amanda is clearly one of the best lifeguards we have ever had. She was promoted to a pool manager and eventually to the aquatic coordinator. Her diligence in maintaining a fun and most importantly, a safe place to swim and visit. We are grateful to have Amanda be a part of the RTPD team!
