Following a blind review by a volunteer-based committee, the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation is awarding six fellowships to LISD professionals and paraprofessionals. These fellowships provide financial assistance to recipients who are seeking higher education degrees and certifications.
“Our mission is to support great education and great educators,” says Thomas White, LEF Executive Director. “Fellowships not only allow us to encourage LISD staff to pursue professional development, they also help to enrich the classroom experience for students who benefit from teachers and administrators who are continuing to learn and contribute to their profession. This program is what helps make LISD one of the best district’s in the state.”
