• Granbury Education Foundation
    1st Annual
    Academic Recognition Banquet
    May 11, 2012
    The Granbury ISD Education Foundation honored the top 25 students in the Granbury High School Class of 2012 during an Academic Recognition Banquet on May 11, 2012, at the Granbury Resort Conference Center. The banquet also included the students honoring the Granbury ISD employees who most influenced their education.
    The GHS students were selected from an initial list of the top 25 earlier in the school year. Following the end of the fifth six weeks, one additional student qualified and was added to the roster for being honored at the banquet.
    The GISD employees were not just from the high school, as the group currently works also at Acton Middle School, Brawner Intermediate School, Crossland Ninth Grade Center, and Oak Woods School. One honoree was a former GHS teacher living in the area.
    In a fitting end to the nationally-observed Teacher Appreciation Week, the teachers and other employees were honored with the reading of a statement written by each student about the impact that they have made not only on their education but also their life.
