Van Alstyne ISD held its annual awards breakfast on June 6, hours before graduation ceremonies. Superintendent Dr. John Spies lightened up the crowd with a bit of humor and then honored district employees who have served in the district from 5 to 25 years, including Elementary School Teacher of the Year Sharron Evans, who is retiring after 36 years and received a standing ovation on her way to the stage. Awards also went to Paraprofessionals of the Year, Teachers of the Year, Auxiliary Staff Member of the Year and Retirees.
