Dr. Randy Stocker Recognized with 226th Bridge-Builder Award

Riverview School District School Board Chair, Lori Oviatt, presents Assistant Superintendent, Teaching and Learning, Dr. Randy Stocker, with the Bridge-Builder Award.


Two days before his official retirement, Dr. Randy Stocker, Riverview School District Assistant Superintendent, Teaching and Learning, was named the 226th recipient of the Riverview School District’s Bridge-Builder Award.

Nominated by Superintendent Dr. Anthony L. Smith, also retiring at the end of the 2021-2022 school year, Dr. Stocker received his award at the June 28, 2022, School Board Meeting. With Dr. Smith unable to attend the meeting, the award was presented by Riverview School District School Board Chair Lori Oviatt.

The Bridge-Builder Award consists of a lapel pin and poem, given in memory of Donna Polacek, the district’s long-time Personnel Director who always went the extra mile to give much more than was expected to the staff and students of

Riverview. Periodically, throughout a school year, Bridge-Builder Awards are given to those who help further the mission and goals in Riverview.

Each recipient’s pin is numbered and recorded commemoratively in a record book located in the Superintendent’s Office. Since the award’s inception in 1997, 226 individuals have been named Bridge-Builders by the Riverview School District.

Dr. Stocker’s nomination reads as follows:

“Dr. Randy Stocker's leadership has been instrumental toward making sure each student and staff member in Riverview not only survives, but thrives.

HIs commitment toward modeling Riverview's values of honesty, integrity, inclusiveness, and engagement, will leave a lasting imprint on students, staff, and families for generations to come!”

As Dr. Stocker heads into retirement, please join us in congratulating him on earning this prestigious recognition and for all the lasting contributions he has made for our Riverview Community.
