CLEAR CREEK ISD VOLUNTEER DECLARED ‘HERO FOR CHILDREN’
League City -- The State Board of Education honored 15 volunteers from school districts across Texas with the Heroes for Children award including Westbrook Intermediate parent Allison Louis.
Louis has been a volunteer for 10 years and in addition to doing the usual volunteer things – cutting, pasting, folding, collating, assembling and organizing – she also reads to students; tutors math and spelling; and works with small groups on class projects. According to her nomination form, “Louis goes above and beyond to support the gifted and talented community.” She also volunteers with the Ecology Club, Orchestra Booster Club and theatre production classes.
“I congratulate Allison Louis on the award and for her commitment to the students at Westbrook Intermediate School,” said Superintendent of Schools Greg Smith, Ph. D., “The value of her dedication, hard work and obvious love for education cannot be measured. Volunteers such as Allison Louis truly make a difference in our schools and we are so appreciative of her time and talents.”
The Heroes for Children honorees are selected by the State Board members and recognized for volunteering their time, talents and skills to help improve the public schools in their communities. Each hero received a certificate of honor, a copy of the resolution scheduled for board approval and photographs commemorating the ceremony. Each hero also will have his or her name engraved on a plaque that is permanently displayed at Texas Education Agency headquarters.
“Ms. Louis is a dedicated parent that will step in at any time and help all children. She has a great heart that makes all of those around her feel welcome and appreciated. The hours she spends helping our programs be terrific are filled with detail and professional quality outcomes. Congratulations to her on this great accomplishment and a big “thank you” for all the members of Team Timberwolf at Westbrook Intermediate School.”
