San Saba ISD took the opportunity to participate in the 1st Annual San Saba Awards Recognition Banquet to recognize some of the ISD's outstanding employees. The staff receiving awards were recognized by their colleagues. The categories were determined by the superintendent and each staff member had the opportunity to nominate their colleaguesfor the categories. The staff members nominated most often for the category were named the winners. It is certainly high praise to be recognized by one's own colleagues as we are generally our harshest critics. Congratulations to each and every one of these deserving individuals. Listed below are the SSISD staff recognized at the banquet:
