Clements High School’s Michael Madden receives Frank R. Kemerer Award
Clements High School U.S. History teacher, Michael Madden, is the recipient of the Frank R. Kemerer Award, presented by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP), in conjunction with the Texas School Administrators’ Legal Digest (TSALD).
Recipients of the award have at least five years of teaching experience in social studies at the high school level and are currently teaching in a Texas public high school. They also display enthusiasm for teaching, creativity, as well as effectiveness as measured by student achievements. In addition, recipients are an integral part of the life and culture of the school as evidenced by involvement in student curricular and/or extracurricular activities.
“On behalf of the Clements High School students, staff and administrators, I am extremely proud and thankful to receive this prestigious award,” said Madden.
Clements High School assistant principals Phil Morgante and Lorri Hubert nominated Madden for the award with an endorsement from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Charles Dupre. Madden is currently the FBISD Student Leadership Facilitator, creator of the renowned Global Studies Seminar and is active in various other campus, district and community projects that support student achievement.
As the recipient of the award, he will have the opportunity to address approximately 3,000 principals at the annual TASSP/TSALD Legal Conference, in Austin on June 10, where he will receive a plaque and a $3,000 award.
The award is named for Dr. Frank Kemerer, longtime professor in the Education Department at the University of North Texas. Dr. Kemerer’s teaching and writing consistently displayed a level of scholarship and professionalism that set a high standard for his students, many of whom now serve as teachers of administrators in Texas public schools.
