Every year, Mansfield ISD hosts an employee awards banquet to honor the employees and staff for their service to the district. This year, the banquet was held on May 16 at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts.

Three staff members have been added to The Mansfield ISD Heartbeat Team. MISD employees are nominated by other district staff for displaying heart in their lives and inspiring other colleagues through their actions.

The spring 2019 Heartbeat Award recipients are Ramonia Bacon, family engagement specialist at T.A. Howard Middle School, Keli Cullen, teacher at Summit High School; and Holly Teague, newly retired Specials Projects Manager and former Associate Superintendent.

“The Heartbeat Award means that they are the heartbeat of the school or department,” said Dr. Vaszauskas. “Without the heart, you can’t survive. It’s what keeps everything going, and that’s the reason these recipients were chosen by their peers.”

The Shining Star Award was first created as the Above and Beyond Award in 1997. It is awarded to non-teaching staff members for their exceptional service and contributions to the students and staff of Mansfield ISD. The public nomination process allows district students, staff, parents and the community to honor those who are exemplars in serving students and staff.

The recipients of the award are Shelley Taylor, MISD risk manager, Officer Warren Tillman, a campus police officer at Linda Jobe Middle School; and Elba Turcios, a custodian at Rogene Worley Middle School.

Congratulations to all award recipients.
