Round Rock ISD says thank you to partners, volunteers and mentors

As the academic year comes to a close, schools across the District are celebrating mentors, partners and volunteers for their selfless donation of time, talents and treasure.  Community Partnerships Supervisor Rachael Brunson said the value of our partners, mentors and volunteers is immeasurable.

“At Round Rock ISD, we value the opportunity to form mutually beneficial partnerships with our community and we realize and appreciate the value our partners and volunteers bring to the District,” Brunson said. “As is the standard in the District, our partners, volunteers and mentors are World Class.”

Each campus chose one individual or group to receive the honor of Campus Partner of the Year, Youth Volunteer of the Year, Mentor of the Year or Volunteer of the Year. Campuses honored these individuals and groups at various on-campus celebrations.
