Congratulations to Sammamish High School teacher Anne Fillmore who was nominated and honored with the Franz Spirit of Giving Award in December.

Fillmore was nominated for her giving spirit because she goes above and beyond in support of her students at Sammamish.

As a recipient of this award Fillmore will be given a year of free bread and a check for $500.

Every year, Franz Family Bakery gives back to the community with the Spirit of Giving campaign. Throughout the month of November each year, Franz accepts nominations for individuals to receive the award. Franz awards approximately 10 winners per year from the nominations submitted by colleagues or friends of the recipients.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
