Ennis ISD wins state awards

Ennis Independent School District won four state awards for excellence in school communications at the annual Texas School Public Relations Association (TSPRA) Conference held Feb. 16-18 in San Antonio.

The district’s Web site (www.ennis.k12.tx.us) won a Gold Star Award in the Web site category.

“Sherrie Stockton, who serves as our district’s Web master, has done a wonderful job in continuing to make improvements to our Web site in terms of both appearance and content,” said Henry Martinez, EISD director of communications.

The district also won a Gold Star Award in the promotional/marketing video category for a teacher recruiting video titled “Welcome to Ennis ISD” that was produced last year.

“The video has been a helpful tool in making prospective teachers aware of the many advantages of working for our school district,” said Dr. Richard Skuza, EISD deputy superintendent. “We have distributed the video at teacher job fairs and during teacher recruiting visits to colleges and universities.”

EISD won a Silver Star Award in the category of published print advertisement for an ad that was published in the most recent edition of the Ennis Chamber of Commerce Directory.

The district’s internal newsletter, District Update, also won a Silver Star Award.

In addition, the district was a finalist for TSPRA’s Crystal Award in the bond election category. The award is presented for a multifaceted promotional program or campaign employing a variety of media, occurring over a period of time, and encompassing well-defined goals, strategies or activities.

EISD’s entry covered the communications that supported last May’s bond election. The other Crystal Award finalists were Fort Bend ISD (award winner), Highland Park ISD, Northwest ISD and Spring Branch ISD.

Except for the Crystal Award, which was open to districts of all sizes, EISD competed in categories with other Texas school districts with total student enrollments of 10,000 or less.

“We are very pleased to see Ennis ISD recognized on a state level for our district’s commitment to outstanding school communications,” said Bill Chapman, EISD transitional superintendent. “We are committed to continuously improving communications at all levels of our school district.”

TSPRA is a professional organization with more than 950 members dedicated to improving public education in Texas by promoting effective communication.
