Maddox Receives International Recognition

Posted

Mark Maddox, Weakley County Schools Director of Student Services, was honored at the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference with the Making IT Happen Award from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).

The ISTE Making IT Happen award honors outstanding educators and leaders who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, leadership, courage, and persistence in improving digital learning opportunities for students. Since its inception in 1995, only 800 educators from around the world have received the award.

Maddox was honored for his work with the Tennessee Educational Technology Association (TETA) and Weakley County Schools. Presenting the plaque at the conference were Dr. Terry Sue Fanning, Executive Director of TETA and Dr. Chris Smallen, TETA Board Chair.

“Making IT Happen is a team effort. I am grateful for the technology team at Weakley County Schools who work to make it happen every day and to my colleagues across the state who are so willing to share the best ways to make it happen. The real thanks should go to the teachers who make it happen minute by minute in classrooms in Weakley County and all over the state,” he said in a statement following the presentation.

Maddox resides in Dresden. He is a former state representative.
