FISD Special Education Director Named TEPSAN of the Year

Frenship Independent School District extends congratulations to Doug Smith, FISD Director of Special Education, who is one of twenty school leaders from across Texas selected as a TEPSAN of the Year by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA).

Smith, the Region 17 TEPSAN of the Year selection, will join the other honorees to be recognized at the TEPSA Awards Reception on Wednesday, June 15 at the Austin Renaissance Hotel.

“Thanks to the hard work and dedication of these leaders, TEPSA maintains its connection to members at the local level,” said TEPSA Executive Director Harley Eckhart.

Members from the 20 TEPSA Regions across the state annually honor a colleague for their outstanding service to the association. Award recipients must be committed to advancing the principalship and the association, as well as serving as a voice for Texas students.

TEPSA, whose hallmark is educational leaders learning with and from each other, has served Texas PreK-8 school leaders since 1917. Member owned and member governed, TEPSA has more than 5,800 members who direct the activities of more than 3 million PreK-8 school children. Learn more at
