Three Gallian staff members named top child care workers of the year

Camp Fire First Texas has named three Gallian Child Development Center staff members as the top workers in their field across the region for the year, honoring Denton ISD’s child care services.

Denton ISD employees took three of the organization’s top five awards at its recent annual ceremony designed to honor child care and development professionals. This year’s Excellence in Child Care awards from Camp Fire First Texas honored Gallian’s Hugh Bolton as the region’s administrator of the year, Heather Salas as its teacher of the year and Beth Sieberhagen as its young professional of the year.

Nominees for the award were submitted through an online recommendation process from the community, with parents, teachers, community members and employers eligible to nominate candidates. Each nominee then submitted a work portfolio relevant to the category he or she was nominated for, with a committee of child care and development professionals then selecting winners.

Camp Fire is one of the leading youth development organizations in the nation, with the First Texas chapter serving the counties of Denton, Hood, Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise since 1914.
