SMITHFIELD — Kristine Solomon from West Clayton Elementary School was named this year’s School Bookkeeper of the Year at a ceremony on April 30.

This is the first year Johnston County Public Schools has named a School Bookkeeper of the Year and the district plans to continue the event for years to come. The Internal Audit Department and Finance Department staff members nominated candidates for the recognition.

The Internal Audit Department hosted the special presentation with district leaders to recognize Solomon for her positive attitude, proficiency, willingness to help others, strong work ethic and dedication to the district’s vision.

Each school bookkeeper was presented with a certificate of appreciation for his or her service.

“This was a difficult decision since there are many deserving candidates in our district,” said Johnston County Public Schools internal auditor Tracy Stubblefield. “We are very excited to show our sincere appreciation to this hardworking group of staff members.”

School bookkeepers are responsible for performing general ledger accounting and payroll duties at each school, among other responsibilities.
