Star Awards Gala to recognize Broken Arrow’s Teacher of the Year, Support Employee of the Year April 18
Broken Arrow Public Schools will honor its Site Teachers of the Year and Support Employees of the Year at the annual Star Awards Gala at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, at Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center.
“It is an honor to celebrate teachers and support staff 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.
“Each staff member recognized at the gala plays an important role in educating, equipping and empowering a community of learners,” Dunlop said. “Because of their passion for our students, Broken Arrow Public Schools remains one of Oklahoma’s premier school districts. It’s an honor to celebrate each of them.”
