This celebration, presented by the Northside Education Foundation (NEF), will recognize District employees for their extraordinary efforts since the pandemic began, and honor NISD’s Outstanding Partners of the Year and NEF’s Unsung Heroes.

All NISD employees, students, families and friends, and community and business partners are invited to watch and share the virtual event information.

This first-ever event is providing a unique opportunity to the community to learn untold stories about a variety of the District's essential education heroes, such as nurses, bus drivers, counselors, police officers, custodians, cafeteria staff, and after school daycare instructors, in addition to teachers, administrators, business and community partners, and many others, supporting Northside students, families and each other during the pandemic.

"As we're near the end of an unprecedented school year, I hope as much of the Northside family can participate. Many honorees at the event will be representing thousands of our best people deserving recognition and this allows them to join this special spotlight, even virtually. The time has come to applaud our heroes' hard work as NISD is essential, together, looking ahead," said NISD Superintendent Dr. Brian Woods.
