Nominees Sought for CCEF
Outstanding Alumni Awards
League City, TEXAS - The Clear Creek Education Foundation recently announced it is accepting applications for the foundation’s Outstanding Alumni awards. Eligible applicants must be graduates of the Clear Creek Independent School District who have excelled in their chosen profession and have made significant contributions to their respective communities. Nominations must be submitted no later than March 15 to be considered for this year’s award.
The selected honorees will be recognized at the Clear Creek Education Foundation’s seventh annual “Reach for the Stars” gala Oct. 6 at Space Center Houston.
Foundation board chairperson Janet Brown said that the award was created in 2001 to both recognize outstanding alumni and to highlight the exceptional foundation the local school system is providing to prepare young people for lives of work and service.
“The Foundation certainly wants to encourage people in our community to help us find the best of our former students to honor,” Brown said.
Last year’s Outstanding Alumni recipients were Carol McGuire McCue, Clear Lake High School Class of 1979, and Robin Mueck, Clear Creek High School Class of 1972. In addition to recognizing outstanding alumni, the Foundation also honors individuals in our community who have provided outstanding volunteer service in the education and lives of students in Clear Creek ISD with the George Carlisle Distinguished Service Award. Last year, Dr. Glenn Freedman was the honoree.
The Clear Creek Education Foundation is a non-profit entity organized in 1992 to support Clear Creek ISD by recognizing and encouraging excellence in academic education. Composed of business and community leaders, the board has raised funds to provide grants to teachers, scholarships to teachers seeking the distinguished National Board Teacher Certification and training to teachers in advanced placement strategies.
A nomination form for the award is available by contacting the Clear Creek ISD Public Information Office at (281) 284-0037 or by visiting the school district’s website at www.CCISD.net.
