Editor’s note: Traditionally, each month at the SISD Board of Trustees, the board members and superintendent honor outstanding Team SISD students and staff who have earned local, regional, state, or national accolades and recognition. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the health and wellbeing of students and staff, it has not been possible to bring in these exceptional individuals and teams. However, they are still deserving of a moment in the spotlight for their outstanding achievements. This article and presentation recognize the students and staff who earned recent honors.

Three SISD military-connected students were selected as the winners in the regional Month of the Military Child Art Contest. The competition shines a spotlight on military-connected students providing them with the opportunity to showcase their artistic talent, while helping others understand their experiences as children of parents who serve in the military. This year’s nationwide contest theme was “A Resilient Force in a Changing World.” These SISD students claimed all three top award spots in the area. Congratulations to these amazing students!
