2012 M.E. Awards Event is a Tribute to Survivors
"Survivor: Plan, Perform, Prevail" was the theme of the 2012 M.E. Awards. The awards presentation is the conclusion of the annual Leadership Symposium every summer. The theme was in recognition of the continuing challenge that employees will have in transitioning to new accountability standards in order to continue the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD history of student success.
The symposium began with an "Undercover Boss" video starring Dr. Gene Buinger and ended with Lesli Guajardo and Randy Belcher hosting the awards show against the "Survivor" backdrop. Instead of the usual live skits, this year's hosts used video and music to tell the story of how HEB ISD employees are surviving in the "new normal" of doing more with less.
The M.E. Awards recognize campus and department accomplishments in student achievement, student and staff attendance, and other areas.
