Frisco student and teacher recognized for achievements


An educator in the Frisco Independent School District (FISD) was recently honored by one of her students for helping her achieve success.

Former FISD student Andrea Shaver was among the top 1% of the scholars at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and was a recipient of its Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars award. She is the president of the school’s student government, and took part in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy when she attended classes at the Frisco ISD Career and Technical Education Center. A learning skills tutor in Frisco can help any young person who wishes to achieve a similar level of success, or simply achieve their very best.

As a recipient of the award, she was invited to ask one of her previous educators to attend the presentation gala, and she selected Diana Bacon. Bacon teaches illustration and graphic design, and since Shaver felt that she had had a big influence on her life, she wanted to recognize that. Bacon has been teaching in the FISD system for the past 14 years.

Bacon remarked to the Frisco Enterprise that she loves being an educator, and she takes great pride in helping to provide her students with skills they can use once they have finished school and moved on to the postsecondary studies or career. She went on to say that she feels very honored to have been chosen, and suggested that it shows becoming an educator is more of a calling than a simple job.
