In December, ahead of the release of “Wonder Woman 1984,” 9news asked viewers to nominate Wonder Women in their communities. They received several submissions about one special Wonder Woman in Northglenn—Kathy Ochoa, the office manager at Westview Elementary. 

Students and staff members describe her as always putting others first and going above and beyond for the Westview community. The submissions share how Kathy selflessly supported a grieving colleague, took on extra work during the pandemic to ensure Westview students were cared for and guided a student with words of wisdom on how to navigate middle school. 

When asked about how it felt to be recognized for her efforts, Kathy said, “I was shocked and humbled! I have received an outpouring of love and compassion from others who have shared many kind words with me since the segment aired on 9news. I had no idea that anyone thought of me in a way of making a difference in their lives. My heart guides me when I do for others; I don't think of recognition. I am passionate about helping.”

While Kathy is not used to being in the spotlight, her outstanding dedication to the Adams 12 Five Star Schools community deserves this wonderful recognition.
