Flavio Ceja Leads with Heart as Migrant Education Distribution Clerk

Flavio Ceja Leads with Heart as Migrant Education Distribution Clerk
Flavio Ceja 2023 CSEY nominee


As a distribution clerk, Flavio Ceja is responsible for collecting, delivering, storing, and keeping inventory of the materials needed to serve students from families that are migratory in San Diego and Orange counties. He also supports the HOPE Infant Family Support Program in North County.

Ceja puts 100% of himself into everything he does, no matter how big or small the task.

In his 17 years with the Migrant Education program, he has done his job with dedication and care, leading with a “heart of gold,” wrote Dr. Carola Solano- Humerez, Samantha Istvanyi, and Merlin Barajas in their combined nomination for Ceja to be the SDCOE Classified Employee of the Year.

“Flavio is an exemplary employee that goes above and beyond to do his work for the benefit of our students,” they shared. “He always has a very positive attitude with anyone and will try to help.”

Ceja inspires his co-workers in much the same way he is able to support students.

“There is absolutely no way we could achieve what we have accomplished without the support of Flavio,” his colleagues said. “He is the reason we are able to give our students the highest caliber of programs.”
