The winners each received recognition and prizes from the generous District Partner sponsors of the PRIDE program: Allied First Bank, Chick-fil-A, Hunting Learning Center and Culvers.
“The individuals honored and recognized as PRIDE winners not only go above and beyond for our students and schools but they also reflect the true meaning of service,” said Dr. John Sparlin, superintendent of schools. “The board and I are honored to recognize our teachers and our employees through this program for all they do on a daily basis for the success of our students.”
The Board of Education implemented this program in the fall of 2015 to recognize, promote and celebrate the many contributions made by teachers and employees across the district.
