During a staff meeting on Jan. 2, Ninth Grade Center (Long Creek High School) Principal Dr. Angelia Watson received the Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve office in the Department of Defense.
The Patriot Award recognizes supervisors and bosses nominated by a Guardsman or Reservist employee for support provided directly to the nominator. It reflects the efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.
Teacher Bryan Mortenson was able to present Dr. Watson with this very special award. NBISD would like to congratulate Dr. Watson on this accomplishment. =
