Fisher Educators Honored by Arc of Dallas(June, 2008)

Colleen Kugler, Fisher Elementary Teacher, will receive the Mary Claire Phipps Award for 2008 and Nancy Lawson, principal of Fisher, will be receiving the All Kids Can Award. Both are awards offered through the Arc of Dallas.

A Fisher parent, Kara Price, nominated these two educators for their work. The Phipps award is given to teachers who exhibit exceptional dedication to making a difference in the lives of students with intellectual disabilities. The All Kids Can Award is given to individuals who have demonstrated the value and spirit of inclusion, who recognize abilities, and who set an example of valuating and respecting people with disabilities in the school and community.

The awards will be given at a recognition ceremony at the Belo Mansion this week.
