When she was superintendent, Dr. Elizabeth Ennis encouraged new and creative methods for improving student learning and achievement.
To recognize the innovation that was initiated and flourished under Ennis, District 214’s sixth superintendent, the Board of Education in 2005 created an award in her honor.
Each year, every District 214 school nominates one individual for the award. A District committee – comprised of a Board of Education member, principal, support staff, licensed educator and central maintenance personnel – reviews each of the nominations and selects a recipient for the Dr. Elizabeth A. Ennis Award.
This year’s recipient is Dan Weidner. All nominees were celebrated this spring, at their schools and during a District-wide employee recognition program. Read the stories of how each individual has created innovative programs and practices that enhance education and help students find success.
