The event took place at Williams High School and included recognition for diversity leadership, announcement of winners of the "Plano ISD Proud" art and writing competitions. There were also performances by theater, speech orchestra and choir students, and semifinalist and finalist work from the art competition was presented throughout the evening.
Hallie Wang of Rice Middle School was announced as the winner of the art competition, and Cailtin Bailey-Garafola and Hedgcoxe Elementary School staff and PTA were named 2020 Diversity Leadership Award winners.
Myrtle Hightower, who has been involved in the diversity celebrations since its creation in the 1980s, was present at the show and said she found it to be outstanding.
"I'm so proud that they chose that topic—'Plano Proud,'" Hightower said. "That ought to always be the standard ... And I'm so proud that we [Plano ISD] are the only district that does this."
