Congratulations to the 2019-20 Standing Ovation Award Winners

Jun 17, 2020

In 2018, Frisco ISD introduced the monthly Standing Ovation Award. The District-wide award recognizes non-teaching staff members across the District who serve the mission of knowing every student by name and need while going above and beyond the call of duty.

Over the 2019-20 school year, 18 staff members were recognized as Standing Ovation Award Winners after being nominated by their peers. From bus drivers to digital learning coaches and custodial workers to special education paraprofessionals, it is clear that within the walls of every Frisco ISD building there are people who are willing to do whatever it takes for students.

“Recognizing employees for their efforts is extremely important to me and in a time when we continue to grow, it’s time to celebrate these people Districtwide,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mike Waldrip said. 

All of the winners were celebrated at Board meetings and presented with a commemorative certificate and trophy. Congratulations to all of the 2019-20 award winners!
