Waco ISD honors Adopt-a-School partners with annual awards
Waco ISD has a long history of strong community support in the form of volunteers and partnerships, specifically through the Adopt-a-School program which has been in place for more than 35 years. Each partnership between a campus and business or organization is unique, based on the needs of the campus and the resources of the partner. Generally, these partnerships fall into four categories: adult-student connections (mentoring and tutoring), incentives and motivation, workforce development and community service.
Each year, the district recognizes its partners with a celebratory event at the conclusion of the year to honor all partners and recognize that year’s recipients of the Adopt-a-School partnership awards. Although an in-person event was not able to be held for the 2020-2021 school year, the following individuals, businesses and organizations are being honored for their outstanding efforts to support the students and staff of Waco ISD through their partnerships.
