FBISD’ Impact Award Posthumously Awarded to Sartartia Middle School Executive Assistant

(FORT BEND ISD) – Fort Bend ISD’s administration team presented the family of Sartartia Middle School’s former Executive Assistant Donna Conrad with the district’s April Impact Award in honor of the lasting impact she left on her coworkers and students.

Conrad passed away on April 7 after a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer. Sartartia Middle School Principal Cholly Oglesby nominated Conrad for the award. “Donna taught me how to be a principal, but more importantly how to be a better friend, mother, wife and all around, a better human,” Oglesby said. “I know she also made a positive impact on at least five principals before me. We all feel the impact of her loss. It has warmed my heart to speak to many FBISD employees and vendors this week that share the same sentiments.”

Conrad worked at Sartartia Middle School for 16 years in various roles and rose to the position of Executive Assistant. During her tenure at the school, she served with six principals including Oglesby, Melissa King-Knowles (2016-2019), Dr. Jennifer Nichols (2012-2016), Ginger Carabine (2011-2012), Tom Thompson (2010-2011) and Dr. Sara Thurman (2007-2010).

“Donna's legacy will continue on through the love and kindness that she's shown us all,” Oglesby said.
