NEF hosts first-ever virtual Pillar Recognition Gala

2020-2021 NISD Pillars Announced with pix of each of the 7 pillar recipients

This year is the Northside Education Foundation's (NEF) 25th anniversary. Despite the pandemic, NEF is pushing past uncertainty to continue serving Northside educators and students. The Foundation's annual Pillars of Character Recognition & Banquet will still take place as a Virtual Pillar Recognition Gala on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. The event will include celebrating NEF's anniversary, student performances, auctions, and for the first time, honoring seven NISD Pillars of Character. One of the honorees is a NISD employee. 

According to NEF Executive Director Cassandra Miranda, "This first-ever Gala and Pillar selection is a notable way to celebrate NEF's 25th anniversary and to spotlight the value of personal and professional growth and improvement in honoring a Pillar of Learning."

The Foundation welcomes NISD employees, students, and families to participate in this 25th-anniversary celebration and meet all the Pillars. For a $25 donation, you can party in place at the NEF Virtual Pillar Recognition Gala. Register here
