CCISD BOARD RECOGNIZES EXEMPLARY STUDENTS AND STAFF
League City, TX – Some Special Olympians were honored during the August Clear Creek ISD Board meeting. The trustees and Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith recognized almost two dozen CCISD students who worked hard and took home Olympic gold or silver.
The Clear Creek Challengers competed against 3,000 athletes from across the state. Three of the four CCISD basketball teams won gold medals while the remaining team earned silver. “We are so very proud of these students,” said Dr. Smith, “They practiced and trained twice a week for months leading up to the Special Olympics.”
The CCISD 2012 Teachers of the Year were recognized as well during the regular board meeting. Jennifer Foley from Hall Elementary is the elementary teacher of the year and Nicola Clemmer from Creekside Intermediate is the secondary teacher of the year. They were nominated by their peers and ultimately chosen by the community to represent the best of CCISD. The teachers were selected for their teaching style and ability to engage children in lessons that have them taking home more than just homework.
CCISD Principals of the Year were honored as well. Stephanie McBride is our Elementary Principal of the year. She leads the youngest Knights of Education Village at Mossman Elementary. She is a great role model for kids and adults as she demonstrates courage every day.
Dr. Jennifer Morrow is CCISD’s 2012 Secondary Principal of the year. Dr. Morrow is the principal of Clear Horizons Early College High School. She leads the most successful early college high school in Texas. In September, Dr. Morrow will leave CCISD to open a new high school for Pearland ISD.
The Trustees also took a moment to shine the spotlight on Superintendent Greg Smith, Ph. D., honoring him for his selection as the Region 4 Superintendent of the Year. Smith was nominated by the CCISD Board of Trustees for his student-centered leadership. Region 4 represents 53 school districts, seven counties, and more than a million students. “Dr. Smith leads by example and will represent the Region 4 superintendents well in the state process,” said Rudy Okruhlik, interim executive director for Region 4.
