Frisco ISD Honors Top Ten Graduates and Their Selected Teachers

May 18, 2017

Frisco ISD was proud to host top ten students from all seven FISD high schools with 2017 graduating classes, along with their families and honored teachers, at the annual Top Ten Luncheon at Collin College on May 17.  

The event recognizes seniors for their outstanding academic achievements and gives them the opportunity to say “thank you” to teachers who have guided them on their journey.

Top FISD graduates are planning to attend colleges such as Rice University, Stanford University, Cornell University, The University of Texas at Austin and many others. They will study a variety of fields including engineering, computer science, business, communications and education, just to name a few.

FISD salutes these outstanding seniors and honors the educators who have played a role in their success.
