Ambassador Awards

  • The Ambassador Awards are designed to motivate, recognize, and reward the people who serve as the district’s ambassadors to parents, students, and the community. These outstanding employees consistently demonstrate exemplary performance and dedicated service to Hays CISD. In 2012, the Board set a goal to celebrate district employees who make noteworthy contributions toward creating a culture of extraordinary customer service. To honor these employees, Hays CISD created the annual Ambassador Awards program.
