District Honors Long-Time Employees and Standing Ovation Award Winners

May 12, 2022

Long-time employees and winners of the 2021-22 Standing Ovation Award were recently invited to an exclusive dinner honoring their commitment to the school district. Access photos from the event.

At the event were 19 employees with milestone years of service to the District of 25 or 30 years, as well as the 13 staff members honored for going above and beyond the call of duty this school year. It’s because of our longtime employees and dedicated staff that Frisco ISD continues to be a destination school district. 

“Hosting our Service Pin and Standing Ovation honorees together for an evening of celebration is a great honor for those of us who lead the District,” said Kenny Chandler, deputy superintendent of schools. “These staff members work day and night to make a difference for our students and are amongst our most dedicated staff.”

In a district of more than 8,000 employees, Frisco ISD is also appreciative of the 87 staff members recognized for 20 years of service and the 225 who have been with FISD for 15 years.
