KISD Distinguished Alumni

Last year’s Killeen ISD Distinguished Alumni pose following the award ceremony. They included Robert Bass, Dr. Rex Hanger, Dr. Truell Hyde II, Capt. Erik Pittman and Jason Pittman. The district’s Alumni Association is seeking more distinguished alumni to honor next March.

The Killeen ISD Alumni Association is looking for distinguished alumni to honor at its annual award ceremony next spring.

The association, a division of the KISD Education Foundation, honors alumni that have graduated from Killeen, Ellison, Harker Heights and Shoemaker high schools.

It has existed since 2005 and has honored 66 KISD Distinguished Alumni.

To qualify, alumni must have graduated at least 10 years ago and have distinguished themselves in their career field or through community service contributions.

Honorees will receive their award at a ceremony at Central Texas College March 26 concurrently with the foundation’s recognition of scholarship recipients.

Other distinguished alumni criteria include the following:

• Nominee should be well-rounded in all areas and significantly contributed to their community and/or his or her profession since attending Killeen ISD.

• The honoree should be a role model that current and future generations of Killeen ISD students can emulate.

• Killeen ISD Alumni Association committee members, Killeen ISD Education Foundation board members and individuals currently seeking election/re-election to public office are not eligible to receive the award.

• KISD Alumni Association committee members may not make nominations.

Nominations will be kept on file for consideration for three years following the submission date.

Nomination forms may be obtained from the KISD Education Foundation office by calling Education Foundation Director Joyce Hodson at 254-336-0181 or online at

Completed forms may be mailed to KISD Alumni Association at P.O. Box 967, Killeen, TX 76540 or emailed to

The deadline is Dec. 15.

Last year, the Alumni Association honored five distinguished alumni in its 14th annual Student Scholarship Reception and Distinguished Alumni Awards. The event also honored 53 high school seniors with $67,400 in college scholarships.
