High School District 214's Everyday Hero campaign recognizes District employees who go above and beyond for students, our schools and the community.

In emails to 214hero@d214.org and through the hashtag #214hero on Twitter, dozens of teachers, custodians, coaches, administrators and support staff, among others, have been nominated for making a difference and leaving a lasting impact.

Among the stories: Rolling Meadows High School employees who built a harness to help a student in a wheelchair walk; a Prospect High School custodian with a warm personality who brightens days for all he meets; and a Buffalo Grove teacher who takes the extra time to create science lessons for the building's preschoolers.

Some of the individuals are featured in short videos throughout the school year.
