District Employees Recognized for being Mansfield ISD’s Shining Stars Mansfield ISD recognized three employees with the Shining Star Award at the annual Employee Awards Banquet on May 16. The Shining Star award, first created as the Above and Beyond Award in 1997, is awarded to non-teaching staff members for their exceptional service and contribu- tions to the students and staff of Mans- field ISD. The public nomination process allows district students, staff, parents and the community to honor those who are ex- emplars in serving students and staff. Shelley Taylor has been the Risk Man- ager for MISD for 19 years. She was nomi- nated for the positive and caring approach she takes in all that she does, despite having a role that often looks at the more challenging side of district operations. Her passion for her work and creating safe campus and district environments, through building strong relationships, is palpable. Officer Warren Tillman was nominat- ed, not only for his commitment to keep students at Linda Jobe Middle School safe on a daily basis, but also for his commit- ment to building trusting positive relation- ships with students and serving as a pos- itive role model every day. Officer Tillman has served in law enforcement for over 25 years and after officially retiring, joined the Mansfield ISD Police Department. He believes in all students and makes it a priority to ensure that all students at Linda Jobe Middle School know that he is there for them. Elba Turcios is a custodian at Rogene Worley Middle School. She has been with the district for six years and spent four years working in Arlington ISD prior to joining Mansfield ISD. She enjoys inter- acting with students, staff and the Worley community. She was nominated for her dedication to students, her team player mentality and willingness to do anything to support the students and staff at Wor- ley. She takes pride in all that she does and is known to always have a smile on her face. 28 | Mansfield TODAY 2018-19 Shining Star Award winners Shelley Taylor, Elba Turcios and Officer Warren Tillman are recognized at the annual Employee Awards Banquet.
