2024 Circle of Success Recognition Event

  • Circle of Success Logo

    SEF’s annual Circle of Success is designed to encourage, facilitate, and reward innovative instructional approaches through enrichment grants to fulfill our Vision Statement. Circle of Success’ further purpose is to provide an opportunity for our community and school district to honor dedicated educators and inspiring students that represent excellence in the Sherman Independent School District.  

    SEF's annual Circle of Success Recognition Event was held in April. This worthy event recognizes the best of Sherman ISD by awarding innovative campus projects through sponsorships and identifying exceptional students and educators.

    The selection of teachers, students, and innovative campus projects begins early in the year. SHS/JLC educators are encouraged to nominate students on the basis of their character, leadership and service. The students that are ultimately selected for recognition are asked to choose a SISD educator that has been an inspiration to them along their educational journey to be honored alongside them.

    Grant requests for innovative campus projects are submitted by Sherman ISD teachers and staff for funding consideration through sponsorships generated through Circle of Success. At last year’s event, the selection of 97 grant requests totaling over $130,000 was announced for implementation during the 2024-2025 school year.

    To date, the Sherman Education Foundation has raised more than $3 million to benefit Sherman ISD students through the funding of innovative projects that enhance, enrich and educate. If you or your organization is interested in ensuring the impact of future innovative projects on our students, we encourage you to join us by becoming a Circle of Success sponsor.
