Salute to the Stars
Salute to the Stars recognizes Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Teacher of the Year Honorees. Each campus principal selects a Teacher of the Year for their outstanding dedication in providing valuable instruction to students in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Paraeducators and support staff recipients are selected each year by supervisors for their outstanding dedication through their notable work on campus. The evening’s celebration is highlighted with teacher drawings, a guest speaker, dinner, entertainment, a raffle, and a live auction.
In 2022 our Underwriter was the Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union, and Arcadis was our Academy Award Superintendent Sponsor. The evening’s honorees had the chance to win a 3 year lease for a Grand Cherokee -Sponsored by the Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union in conjunction with Northwest Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
In 1998, former Superintendent, Richard Berry had the vision to recognize district Spotlight Teachers while raising money for the Foundation. Pam Scott, Director of Partners in Education, worked closely with the first gala co-chairs, John Fox and Kim Watson, and Salute to the Stars committee members to organize the first Salute to the Stars Gala. Proceeds from the gala provide funds for qualified students seeking education beyond high school and for innovative staff development programs for Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Salute to the Stars has raised over $4M since its inception.
