This week Mr. Monegan, better known as security guard Mr. Allen, is recognized as the staff of the week.
Mr. Monegan has been working at Paradise Valley High School since “January of 2014”, he stated. Before working at Paradise Valley, Mr. Monegan said he worked at “two boarding schools and one college”. However, as opposed to his other schools, he “love[s] this better”.
Furthermore, his favorite thing about Paradise Valley High School is “the students. I like their great attitude. I like their drive for success. I like the camaraderie that I see around here”.
Likewise, students share the same fondness for Mr. Monegan. Sophomore Tori DeBevec’s favorite thing about him is that, “He treats everyone the same. He shows that he…genuinely cares about all of us students and then he tries to make everything fun and interesting for us”.
Moreover, Mr. Monegan is known for the candy he gives out to kids wearing their IDs and supporting PV PRIDE. This is something that does not go unnoticed and Senior Sarah McCoy notes he is “Always…in such a good mood and he’s so friendly, hands out candy, and if you’re walking by he’ll always say…‘hi, how are you doing’”.
Mr. Monegan states his favorite thing about his job is “Connecting with the students, because if they have their IDs on I give them candy and I get a chance to talk to them and find out where they come from and that’s probably the coolest part about it. Interacting with the students”.
Senior Meghan Marlowe added, “He’s super nice and every time you see him on campus he always waves hi and asks how you’re doing and it just makes you feel really appreciated”.
Though he has only worked at PV for about two years, Mr. Monegan has clearly made a large impact on the school and it’s students such as senior Lauren Reynolds who appreciates how “He makes a point of talking to people”. Thank you Mr. Monegan for showing Paradise Valley PRIDE everyday!
