Honorees are nominated by other LISD Staff members for the award.
John and Peggy Kirton Drama Scholarship
A scholarship fund for LHS theater students started by John and Peggy Kirton. The Kirton's put nearly $60,000 in the hands of the Lindale ISD Education Foundation to create an endowment that would impact the high school’s drama department for years to come. The endowment establishes a $1,000 scholarship to be awarded to four drama students annually for 12 years. The scholarship will total $4,000 each year. The remaining money has been donated to the foundation to award innovative grants for classroom projects.
Grants for Great Ideas

Some of the projects funded included technology to improve fluency in elementary and special education
students, state-of-the art probes for high school science labs, forensic science tools, and projects to help
struggling students understand math concepts.
