MISSION, Texas - Mission Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) has announced the name of its District Staff Member of the Year. The announcement was made during a special luncheon today, honoring the Staff Members of the year from each of the district's campuses and main buildings/departments.
The Mission CISD Staff Member of the Year is Nora Cavazos from Leal Elementary School. She is a lab proctor for the campus. Cavazos has been with Mission CISD for 33 years.
Earlier this spring, each Mission CISD campus and building went through a process to select an hourly-paid employee to recognize as a Staff Member of the Year. Those individuals were then nominated for the district-level honor. The nominations were reviewed and scored by a panel of judges to select the district honoree. Criteria used in the judging process included: the individual's influence on their worksite, attitude, cooperation, attendance, creativity, and a willingness to "go the extra mile."
