Katy ISDâ€™s Partners in Education is delighted to announce the 2011 KEYS mentors of the year and their campuses: Â Judy Blanchard, Katy High School; Ruth Ann Casci, Morton Ranch High School; Elton Couch, Rylander Elementary and Cinco Ranch Junior High; Barbara Estes, Sundown and Mayde Creek Elementary Schools; Anne Hanaoka, Creech Elementary and Beck Junior High; Carlton Johansson, Wolfe Elementary; George Lee, Cinco Ranch and Morton Ranch High Schools; Patty McDermott, Sundown Elementary; David Saenz, Mayde Creek Junior High; Brenda Stevenson, Kilpatrick and WoodCreek Elementary Schools; and Michelle White, Creech Elementary.
Collectively, this group represents a total of 84 years and, because some mentor more than one child, 25 students.
With over 600 mentors working with children on the brink of success all across Katy ISD, the designation of â€œMentor of the Yearâ€ is a significant one. They are selected based on their years of service, the number of children they have mentored and their depth of commitment to those children. Mentors of the Year are nominated by campus KEYS Liaisons and will be honored on February 24 at Ties & Tiaras, the KEYS Scholarship Programâ€™s fundraising event.
