Education Foundation Shining Stars Gala

shining stars


Thank you to the GISD Education Foundation for honoring the GHS Class of 2022 Top 10%. Each Distinguished Scholar selected one teacher from their time at GISD to be honored as their Distinguished Educator at this special event.

Each scholar prepared a letter of gratitude to their selected teacher, which was included in the program and read by the students at the gala. In return, each educator prepared a short video showing their appreciation for the student.

As a small reward for their outstanding achievements at GHS, the Foundation gifted each scholar a $75 Amazon gift card. Also, thank you to the GHS jazz band for the wonderful entertainment during dinner. To view pictures of the event, visit our GISD facebook or click here.
