The Board of Trustees for the Clear Creek Independent School District has announced nominations for its 2017 Citizen of the Year.
“The success of a school district and its students does not lie solely in the hands of great teachers and administrators, but also in the steadfast support of its community,” trustees said in a press release. “In the Clear Creek Independent School District, dedicated community members volunteer their time and efforts by contributing to the quality of life for our schools and the growing number of students within the District.”
Each year board trustees ask stakeholders to nominate community members who champion the district and deserve to be recognized for it. The award is given each year to honor an outstanding community member for their support of CCISD programs and activities.
Former recipients include Joyce Abbey, Harv Hartman, Robert Davee, David Braun, Dr. James O’Malley, Gib Larson, and Lucien Q. Junkin.
Persons who receive the award are able to point endowment funds from the school’s foundation to select projects. Trustees established the Citizen of the Year endowment allows recipients to direct funds to academic or classroom activities in his or her name.
The recipient will be announced at the Clear Creek Education Foundation’s Annual Awards Gala on Nov. at South Shore Harbour Resort & Conference Center in League City.
