12 Days of Success: Day 1 - Success in 6 Awards


On the first Day of Success, you helped support D6, by celebrating our amazing staff!


District 6 is full of amazing people! We recognize that our staff works round the clock to support the students in our community so we wanted to throw a party for them. In 2020, we held the 2nd Annual Success in 6 Awards at Zoe’s Event Center in Downtown Greeley. It was a great celebration of the work being done by District 6 Staff with special awards for Educator of the Year, Leader Among Leaders, Rookie of the Year, and Heart & Soul for our classified staff. Seventy-two staff members were nominated for these awards!!


The evening started with heavy appetizers catered by Kenny’s Steakhouse and cocktails compliments of Coral Bay. Other sponsors included Comcast, Flood & Peterson, Weld Community Foundation, Aetna, Atmos Energy, and the Greeley Rotary Club. After social hour, nominees headed to their seats for a presentation full of excitement, music, and recognition for all of the amazing things our staff has done. This event is one of The Success Foundation’s favorites, and while we can’t celebrate in person in 2021, we have something up our sleeves to celebrate our winners for the year! Stay tuned!
