Lewisville Chamber Awards | January 2023

Southridge Elementary students Kaylin Jones, Brent Pace and teacher Mitchell Bitner were all recognized by the Lewisville Chamber of Commerce at the Chamber's January Luncheon. 

Teacher of the Month – Mitchell Bitner
Southridge Elementary third-grade teacher Mitchell Bitner is an asset to the Southridge family. He personifies servant leadership, which is evident in the way his team interacts and supports one another. He prioritizes building relationships with kids, and there is no misinterpretation of whether he cares about students beyond the classroom walls. He deserves recognition for his efforts and intentionality. Southridge is thankful to have teachers like Mr. Bitner working with students every day.

Student of the Month – Kaylin Jones
Southridge Elementary fifth-grader Kaylin was chosen for many reasons; she possesses intrinsic motivation, she is diligent, eager to learn, organized and an all-around great student. We are impressed with how thoughtful, kind, and respectful she is towards staff and peers. She has already left her mark here at Southridge as a life-long Rocket. Southridge teachers and staff are looking forward to seeing all her future accomplishments.
