Daviess nurse named Kentucky School Nurse of the Year


Sheila Estes, a nurse in the Daviess County schools, has been named the 2018 Kentucky School Nurse of the Year by the Kentucky School Nurse Association (KSNA).

Estes serves as the school nurse at East View, Meadow Lands and Whitesville elementary schools.

“At each of the schools I serve, I consider myself part of a team that strives to provide quality education to students,” Estes said. “My job on the team is to assess and evaluate students’ medical needs that may create a barrier to learning, and to make recommendations and referrals to help them become physically, emotionally, mentally and socially healthy.”

Estes will be recognized at the KSNA’s annual conference July 16-18 in Lexington.
