Roneta Stubbs honored as District 158 ABCDE Award winner

LANSING, Ill. (November 1, 2023) – The District 158 School Board recognized Roneta Stubbs with the first ABCDE Award of the 2023-24 school year.

Short for “Above and Beyond the Call of Duty Every day,” the award is given to “celebrate the Lansing community, its outstanding citizens, and unsung heroes of our District,” according to the District 158 website.

Stubbs is a parent of children in both districts 158 and 215, and also is a regular volunteer and active member of the community.

At a recent School Board meeting, Board President Mary Kelly read the following statement in celebration of Stubbs:

Roneta Stubbs is an exemplary volunteer, community member, and parent of students in both Lansing School District 158 and Thornton Fractional Township High School District 215. She is the Music Booster President at Memorial Junior High School and Treasurer of the T. F. South Music Boosters. When a family was unable to arrange for their child to participate in Beginning Band, Ms. Stubbs offered to transport them to morning rehearsals. She is the lead parent for band uniform fittings, chaperones music events, organized parents to provide refreshments for students after the Summer Band Concert, is a member of the Superintendent Advisory Committee, and can be seen walking in the Good Neighbor Day Parade. She goes above and beyond to promote the “village” that supports all students, staff, and the community of Lansing to succeed. We are greatly appreciative of her service and honored to present her with the ABCDE Award!


District 158 is encouraging the local community to nominate someone who has “gone above and beyond” for its ABCDE Awards in future quarters. To nominate, visit the ABCDE Award page on District 158’s website.

  1. Thank you to Dr. Nathan Schilling, Dr. Kelly Ross, Mr. Matthew Becker and Board President Mary Kelly for this award.

    It feels good to be recognized. What I do is from the heart and because of the love I have for my boys. I am devoted and dedicated to raising two incredible young men, being a leader in my community, and doing it all while balancing the innumerable challenges life brings. It’s an honor and joy to serve my family, church and community.
