2013 Shining Stars

2013 Shining Stars Gala
Education Foundation's Shining Stars Gala Honors Top Ten Graduates

Fifty Pasadena ISD seniors -- 10 from each of the district's five high schools -- were honored Thursday night along with a distinguished educator chosen by each of the students at the annual Shining Stars Gala at the Doubletree Hotel.
  The event featured second-year sponsor, MDL Enterprise, Inc., which provided computers to each of the students, who represent the top 10 among the 2013 graduates at their school. Presenting the gifts on behalf of MDL were Michele and Dennis Lamm.
  The Pasadena ISD Education Foundation, host of the event, paid tribute to Terry Brotherton as the 2013 Community Star Award recipient.
  The gala also included a tribute to two district teachers who recently passed.
  The teachers -- Walter Dunaway from South Houston High and Stanely Oakes from Memorial High -- were remembered in speeches written by students. Deborah Oakes, who works at Turner Elementary, accepted the award in her husband's honor.
