CFBISD Honors 2021-2022 Volunteer of the Year

CFBISD recognized Ms. Andrea Allen as the CFBISD Volunteer of the Year at the April 7, 2022 School Board Meeting.  

Ms. Allen is the Founder and CEO of a local non-profit, Connecting the Community, and has served in the community for over 10 years. She is a graduate of Newman Smith High School and lives in Carrollton. 

Andrea has a passion for helping students thrive in school and life. In 2020, Andrea approached the district about starting a Pen Pal Mentor Program for elementary students which led to the current partnership in place at CFBISD today. Connecting the Community recruits and manages volunteers and mentors to serve in a way that works best for the volunteer and ultimately meets the needs of our students and staff.
