You will want to be there when the finalists are introduced and the winners announced at our newly conceived and revamped employee recognition event - the Stellar Awards, co-presented by CFE Federal Credit Union and Walt Disney World Resort, held at the fabulous Rosen Shingle Creek!

All the exceptional nominees who use their knowledge and skills to lead our students to success will be there with their friends and family. They'll make a grand entrance to the banquet that you won't want to miss.

Sixteen finalists in four categories will be introduced, then the winners for Support Person of the Year, Assistant Principal of the Year, Principal of the Year, and Teacher of the Year will be announced. A crowd of nearly 1,500 will be standing to applaud our best of the best. Employees, school supporters and community members are all welcome.

Event details, including how to purchase event tickets, will be available soon. Check back for updates.
