The Clear Creek ISD board of trustees is taking in nominations for the 2021 Citizen of the Year award, the school district announced in a news release July 5.

The award is given each year to honor an outstanding member of the community who supports CCISD and devotes their efforts to the betterment of public education, it said in the release.

Recipients eligible for the 2021 Citizen of the Year award must meet four criteria:

  • They must have demonstrated a commitment to CCISD through volunteer efforts.

  • They must have contributed time, talent and/or treasure significantly in ways that have benefited CCISD districtwide and not just at one campus.

  • They must have maintained a reputation across the CCISD community as an individual with high standards and dedication to excellence in public education.

  • They must have voluntarily served CCISD, its students and patrons and been impactful for a year or more and currently still making that contribution.

All nominations must be submitted by Aug. 1 to be considered for the award. Nomination forms are available online. Once completed, nominations can be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to this address: Clear Creek Education Foundation, Citizen of the Year Selection Committee, P.O. Box 1631, League City, TX 77574.

Previous winners of the CCISD Citizen of the Year award include Chris Reed, League City Mayor Pat Hallisey and others.
