Katy ISD Partners in Education recently announced guest speakers for the annual VIPS celebration breakfast on May 1 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Merrell Center. This year’s speakers include TIRR Memorial Hermann music therapist Meagan Morrow; clinical coordinator Dawn Phillips; and speech pathologist Kelley Warren Kirst. Attendees may recognize this trio from features on CNN and ABC’s Diane Sawyer – Special Report, detailing the recovery of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The celebration breakfast will also include the long-awaited announcement of each campus volunteer of the year and special performances by Katy ISD student groups.

Hosted by Katy ISD Partners in Education and the VIPS Executive Board, the breakfast honors the thousands of school district volunteers who donate their time each year to Katy ISD students and teachers. Last year alone, Katy ISD volunteers gifted more than 700,000 volunteer hours to the district.
