WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A pretty special surprise Monday for a school secretary who truly values every minute on the job.

Sue Denniston is the secretary for Lincoln Elementary School in Waterloo.

She is battling stage four breast cancer, and has missed a lot of school because of treatments.

On Monday, she received "Secretary of the Year" from Waterloo Community Schools.

"I was just glad to be able to come to work this morning because last week I was only here one day," said Denniston. "So being able to come to work and do my job and be here with my family, my Lincoln family and Lincoln kids."

This is the second time Denniston has battled breast cancer.

She knows it's going to be a tough road ahead, but she says she's taking it six months at a time.
