Nelson and Just named 'San Onofre School's Best' at Fallbrook Rotary

FALLBROOK – At a recent Rotary Club of Fallbrook luncheon meeting, San Onofre School’s Teacher of the Year, Emily Just, and Classified Employee of the Year, Vickie Nelson, were honored with a presentation by Fallbrook Union Elementary School District superintendent Dr. Brian Jacobs. Rotarian Janice Schultz presented each honoree with an embossed certificate of achievement.

“Not only is Vickie Nelson an inspiration to our most important assets, our students, but her commitment to the military students and families consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty,” said Jacobs.

Of Emily Just, Jacobs said, “Her student-centered instruction not only helps them be successful at school, but in life. Her classes have raised dollars for UNICEF, and sent old math textbooks to a school in Africa where they had none.”

Jacobs noted to the group that Just had previously received a Fallbrook Rotary scholarship for teachers to visit Africa.

These awards are part of an ongoing effort by the Fallbrook Rotary Club to recognize and reward excellence in education and personal performance. For more information, visit
