It All Starts with An Amazing Teacher

Yankus Receives Lucille McLean Award for Excellence in Teaching

Excellent teachers are remembered for a lifetime. During Plattsmouth’s Harvest Festival last Saturday, Monica Yankus, a long-time resident of Plattsmouth, received the 2016 Lucille McLean Award. Yankus is the kindergarten teacher at St. John the Baptist and has been with the school for 23 years.

According to parents, teachers and staff of St. John’s school, Yankus is especially deserving of this award. “Monica is beautiful example of many positive qualities; joy, professionalism, mentor, friend, educator and christian,” said Debi Baumert, art teacher at St. John’s and owner of Colour Art Studio. “Our community and it's youth are blessed to call Monica ours,” added Baumert. 

The Lucille McLean award is given each year to an outstanding educator who has also been actively involved in the community. The award was presented to Yankus by the Gamma Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa (ADK) Teacher's Honorary in memory of Lucille Essert McLean. McLean was a long time teacher in Cass County and a charter member of ADK.

“Monica's joyful personality is such a blessing to have for our children as they begin learning and loving Jesus and the various academic subjects,” said Fr. Loras Grell, chief administrator officer of St. John the Baptist and pastor at Church of the Holy Spirit. 

Yankus who began her career as an art teacher, has been an active member of Church of the Holy Spirit in Plattsmouth for the 30 years. She currently serves on the school’s  strategic planning committee and also helps with annual festivals and activities at the church. In addition, Yankus is an active member of Delta Kappa Gamma and currently serves as treasurer. She is a past member of the Organization of Plattsmouth Women, Extension Club and also has served on the Plattsmouth Public Library Board. 

“I am honored and humbled by this award and by the support I've received from the Plattsmouth community and Church of the Holy Spirit,” said Yankus. “I accept this award on behalf of all the amazing teachers and staff at St. John’s who are also deserving of this recognition,” said Yankus.  

Monica is married to Mike Yankus and they have two grown children Matt and Anne.
