To congratulate and honor its “stars,” Broken Arrow Public Schools will recognize Site Teachers of the Year, Support Employees of the Year, retirees and service award recipients at 6:00 p.m. Thursday, April 26, at Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center.
“It is an honor to celebrate our employees who continually make it their mission to represent Broken Arrow Public Schools with incredible leadership and excellence every day,” Superintendent Dr. Janet Dunlop said. “The dedication these individuals show to our students and staff is what makes Broken Arrow such a special place.”
During this sit-down dinner, 28 Site Teachers of the Year are formally introduced, five are named finalists and one is honored as the District Teacher of the Year. This individual goes on to represent the district at the State Teacher of the Year Competition this summer.
In addition, five staff members will be recognized as Support Staff of the Year finalists with one being presented with the Beyond and Above Award. These employees are nominated by teachers, administrators, colleagues and supervisors for consistently going the extra mile in support of the district’s goals and objectives.
Throughout the evening, a number of retirees and service award recipients who have contributed 20 or more years of service will also be recognized for the positive impact they’ve made throughout their career.
“Each staff member recognized at the gala plays an important role in educating, equipping and empowering a community of learners,” Director of Employee Relations Adrienne Stout said. “Because of them, this district is a shining star in public education.”
