The Granbury ISD Education Foundation honored the top 25 students in the Granbury High School Class of 2022 during the tenth annual Academic Recognition Banquet on May 5, 2022, at La Bella Luna. The banquet also included the students honoring the Granbury ISD employees who most influenced their education.
The GISD employees were not just from the high school, as the group also currently works at other campuses and departments. Some were retired educators who previously taught in the school district.
