Congratulations, 2023 Lamp of Learning Honorees!

The WESD is proud to announce our 2023 Lamp of Learning Honorees! Once each year, our District recognizes the unique, exemplary contributions of special members of the #WESDFamily by honoring them with the Lamp of Learning Award. This award allows us the opportunity to thank staff and community and members for supporting the education of our students. It is also the highest recognition given in the District. This year, we celebrate 19 extraordinary people who represent the Vision, Mission and Values of the WESD.
