“In Rotary, our motto is ‘Service Above Self’ and these teachers and paraprofessionals exemplify that exactly,” said Sarah Carriker, Northwest Austin Rotary Club president. “It is our pleasure to invest in these educators so they can feel appreciated for all the hard work that they do for our community.”

The Northwest Austin Rotary Club awarded Teacher of the Year honorees with $100 cash awards and Paraprofessional of the Year honorees with $50 cash awards, all of which was raised during the organization’s annual fruit fundraiser.

“Our teachers and paraprofessionals work extremely hard in RRISD schools every day and deserve all the recognition bestowed upon them,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steve Flores said. “Thank you to the Northwest Austin Rotary Club for recognizing the outstanding service and supporting RRISD as valued partners.”
