QISD employees honored as Bulldog Heroes


Two Quitman ISD employees were recognized for their service to the district at last week’s board of trustees meeting.

Maintenance worker Chris Williams and math teacher Laura Driver received the Bulldog Hero Award.

Williams received the award for building a mobile chair for fourth-grader Angel Cortez.

Driver was given the award for her return to teaching. She was serving as a math specialist at the elementary campus but returned to the second-grade classroom to fulfill an opening during the first six weeks of the school year.

“Both of these individuals exhibit the moral compass that we expect of our Bulldog team,” Superintendent Rhonda Turner said. “They not only recognized and considered the needs of our students, but were both willing to step up and take action. They are what is great about QISD.”
