Longtime Educator Receives Volunteer Award


Lynne Dozier Named 2018 Heroes for Children Award Recipient

When Lynne Dozier retired after a 30-year teaching career, little did we know that her gifts to Klein ISD were simply turning a corner to a greater reach so that her love of education could impact even more students.

“It’s just something that makes me feel alive when I walk in the doors of a school and see these children,” said Dozier.

Lynn has been a P2P Investor long before we coined that phrase. Within weeks of her retirement, she began building community as she became a volunteer with the Klein ISD Education Foundation Board of Directors. She now chairs the grant writing committee, conducts grant writing workshops to help cultivate talent and rides the “Celebration Express” to surprise grant recipients.

Her service to education does not stop with the Education Foundation. She also helped coordinates a mentor program at Eiland Elementary School. For the past five years, she and other members of her church have worked each week to mentor children in need of a friendly adult figure in their lives.

If she’s not riding the “Celebration Express” delivering grants, and she’s not mentoring, you can probably find her working at other campuses reading to children, judging student competitions, leading teacher workshops, training students on writing skills in preparation for AP exams, teaching poetry and writing skills to young learners and assisting administrators with writing and editing applications as she did with the staff at Klein Forest as part of their State School of Character application.

She has not only served students in education, but she has also served her community. After serving on the Bond 2015 committee, she served as the co-chair for the Political Action Committee. She most recently served on the Tax Ratification Election Advisory Group and remains a staple in the Klein ISD community.

And now, she is one of only 15 awardees statewide who have collectively donated more than 223 years of service and who will receive the 2018 Heroes for Children Award. She is being recognized at a ceremony on September 14, 2018, at the William B. Travis Building in Austin, TX where she will receive a plaque and a resolution.

“Every morning, I get up and I make a promise to myself, that my day will have a purpose. And volunteering is that purpose.”
