Harv Hartman has been selected as the 2015 Clear Creek ISD Citizen of the Year and will be honored at the Clear Creek Education Foundation’s Gala Saturday, Nov. 7, at South Shore Harbour Resort.
The Clear Creek Independent School District strives to be a visionary leader in education by engaging not only students, staff and parents, but by building rapport and support with our community leaders. “It takes teamwork to keep moving forward and to create every opportunity possible to ensure academic success for all students in CCISD,” explained Board of Trustees President Dr. Laura DuPont. “We are proud to announce that Harv Hartman is the 2015 CCISD Citizen of the Year.”
“His distinguished record of volunteer participation with CCISD spans four decades,” said Superintendent Dr. Greg Smith, “Starting with his children’s education in the district and evolving to leadership roles in the Clear Creek Education Foundation, leading partnership development on behalf of NASA, and chairing a business-government-education committee that advocates for pre-k-20+ education across the region today.”
Hartman was nominated by the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership and its Education and Workforce Development Committee. The nomination read in part: “Harv’s contributions are sustained and reflect a maturation in the engagement process, both at a personal level – as a father and grandfather of CCISD students – and at a professional level – as a senior NASA executive, community leader, and businessman.
“CCISD benefits from community engagement at many levels, from working directly with children, to supporting the district’s classrooms and schools through donations of funds and services, to advocating for CCISD’s bonds and legislative needs. One person who has contributed in all of these ways and more is Harv Hartman.”
