Salute to Service - Dallas ISD Lifetime Achievement Awards

  • Team members with more than 30 years of service in Dallas ISD are invited to the inaugural Salute to Service program and reception with District leaders on May 7, 2024, from 5:30-7:00 pm at Adamson HS.  These honorees range from teachers to plumbers to Deputy Chiefs and have a collective 12,500 years of service to our students in Dallas.  

    Honorees are invited to bring a guest to the event and will receive a lifetime achievement plaque on that evening; special recognition will be provided for the 17 employees with 50 or more years of district service. 

    Ahead of the Salute to Service event, HCM will work with Communications to highlight our Salute honorees’ service via the Beat and District social media platforms.  

    Honorees received an email invitation to the event with an RSVP link, and will receive a hard-copy invitation in mid-April.
