Every year, the Linda Brown Fellows and Star Awards recognizes and rewards exceptional teachers and classified (non-teaching) staff in the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District.
Nominated by parents, teachers, students and members of the community, the Linda Brown Fellows Award is presented to teachers who demonstrate creativity, exceptional merit, dedication to innovation, and a commitment to making learning exciting every day.
Star Awards recognize classified staff members who go above and beyond to provide truly outstanding support.
Nominations are reviewed and recipients are selected by a committee.
Recipients of the Linda Brown Fellows (certificated staff) and Star (classified staff) Awards each receive $1,000 for their personal use. Additionally, Linda Brown Fellows recipients each receive a $2,000 grant for educational enhancement.
