MISD Leader Awards

MISD Leader Awards are given annually by the Foundation to recognize District staff who go above and beyond for their students, colleagues, and the community.  Staff are nominated and voted for by their peers to receive this award.

“All staff in this school district work incredibly hard, and more than that, they care. This is one small way we can recognize the best of the best and show them our appreciation.” Erin Steffen, Foundation Director.

2020 MISD Leader award recipients

Even though school was not in session, it was important this tradition of recognition continue. Ann Wicke and Brenda Clark’s award announcement included features in the Marion Times newspaper and Marion Chamber of Commerce e-newsletter, as well as a District-wide email and yard signs placed in front of each school. As a personal touch, some staff and students chose to submit photos or images that were put into a presentation and then shared with the recipients.
