TCUSD honors longtime staff members

At 45 years and counting, Lolita Tsinnie earns top honors

TUBA CITY-Lolita Tsinnie has seen many of the current Tuba City Unified School District (TCUSD) administrators through primary school, grade school, high school and even college graduation. She mentored many of the TC District teachers in attendance at the staff recognition dinner that night, but the most inspiring of her life talents is not just her longevity, but her continued optimism, hopefulness and sheer joyfulness in nurturing students.
