Jesse Sowells Honored with Impact Award, Exemplary Dedication in Special Education

(FORT BEND ISD) - Elkins High School Special Education teacher Jesse Sowells is the May Impact Award recipient in recognition of his commitment to his students and colleagues.

“I am truly honored and blessed to have been nominated and receive the Impact Award,” Sowells said. “I do what I do on a daily basis at Elkins HS because I love teaching the students, supporting the parents, and it’s a pleasure working with the administration and staff.” Elkins HS Special Education nurse Diane Clark nominated Sowells because he consistently goes above and beyond, offering assistance and support to those in need, she said. “His devotion to his students and coworkers shines through his selfless actions,” Clark said. “He consistently checks in on the FLASH class and offers his support when we are shorthanded, no matter how busy he may be.” Sowells has served FBISD for 18 years. Currently, he is the EHS Special Education Department Chair, provides in-class support to students and acts as a mentor to new teachers and staff, all while keeping a smile on his face. “Mr. Sowells is a true asset to the SPED Department,” Clark said. “Receiving this award is a testament to his extraordinary dedication and selflessness.”
