April 12, 2019 – A veteran Killeen ISD educator has won not one, but two, Teacher-of-the-Year awards this year.

Brenda Drawdy, who teaches at the renowned KISD Career Center, has been named Texas Industrial Vocational Association Teacher of the Year. And that’s not all: she’s also been named the Texas Association for Career and Technical Education Teacher of the Year.

Drawdy is a 46-year veteran educator who has worked 16 years for Killeen ISD.

The Texas Industrial Vocational Association is the professional organization for Career and Technical Educators certified in Trade & Industrial Education. The Texas Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) is a national association with which other CTE organizations partner.

Drawdy was selected as the Texas ACTE teacher of the year and will now be considered for the ACTE Region IV Teacher of the Year.

“Ms. Drawdy makes a huge difference in the lives of our students every day. She definitely deserves these awards. We’re proud of her,” Superintendent John Craft said.
