Foundation Honors Class of 2017 Top Scholars and Educators


The Lindale ISD Education Foundation knows the longstanding tradition of excellence at the Lindale Independent School District is sustained through the hard work of educators who encourage students to achieve their goals, and scholars who set the academic bar high for future graduates. The foundation recognized the top ten graduating seniors of the class of 2017 before their families and proud community members at the eighth annual Academic Excellence Recognition Banquet at the Hideaway Lake Clubhouse Thursday, May 18. The banquet, themed “Celebrating Our Stars,” not only honored the top graduating seniors, but also the extraordinary teachers who have influenced them.


The top ten students were honored as Distinguished Scholars. Each student selected one teacher that made the biggest and most positive impact on their educational careers at LISD to be recognized alongside them as a Distinguished Educator.
