Each month, Frisco ISD recognizes employees who demonstrate servant leadership and are distinguished examples of the non-teaching staff.
The Standing Ovation Award winners are nominated by their peers. Through their positive attitude and servant leadership, they are shining examples of employees who take initiative and consistently carry out responsibilities beyond their job requirements.
Congratulations to Heritage High School Assistant Principal Brent Benningfield and Fine Arts Coordinator Chris Cansler who were named winners of the May Standing Ovation Award. They were recognized for going above and beyond during the graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020 and logged tens of thousands of “steps” between them over the course of the 10 ceremonies.
Benningfield just finished his 20th year in Frisco ISD and looks forward to continuing his service to the community in his new role as student services coordinator. He enjoys impacting the experience that students have in their community through school. Serving families during the graduation ceremonies was important to him because he knew that the students and families had worked hard for this milestone and it meant a lot to them.
Cansler has been with the District for six years and never hesitates to help those around him. As a leader, he enjoys assisting campus administrators and fine arts teachers in providing Frisco ISD students with an unparalleled fine arts education and experience. He is in awe of the evolution of the graduation ceremonies that were put together by the Student Services Department as administrators across the District collaborated to come up with a viable plan. As a teamplayer, he is proud to have helped make the graduations possible.
Many thanks to Benningfield and Cansler for making a positive difference in the school district.
