Mansfield ISD’s 50 highest achieving high school students and the teachers that inspired them were honored at the MISD Education Foundation’s 20th Annual Academic Recognition Celebration on Monday, April 22.
The MISD Education Foundation is an organization that aims to foster creative approaches to generate and distribute resources to the educators and students of Mansfield ISD in order to enrich and meet the district’s stated mission of ensuring educational and personal success. The Education Foundation awards funds to teachers for innovative projects and programs that are not funded by tax dollars. Since 1998, the MISD Education Foundation has awarded over $3 million in innovative teaching grants.
“This year we were able to invite the district and community to celebrate the student’s and their chosen educator that made a significant impact on their lives to celebrate with us,” said Lynn Wilkie, the Executive Director for the MISD Education Foundation. “Since we are not there to cheer them on when they take a test, this is our way to recognize their outstanding academic accomplishments.”
Students were presented with a ‘Top 50’ Medal. Teachers and students received a plaque with their name, a portrait of themselves and a Top 50 lapel pin.
