TOMBALL - The Texas Social Studies Supervisors Association (TSSSA) has honored Tomball ISD K-12 Social Studies Content Specialist, Alison Reed, with the 2024 Rosemary Morrow Social Studies Supervisor of the Year State Award. The prestigious award recognizes current TSSSA members who exemplify the leadership role of a social studies supervisor.

The award is officially known as the Rosemary Morrow TSSSA Supervisor of the Year Award. It was created to honor a longtime social studies teacher and administrator in Austin ISD and former Director of Social Studies Curriculum at TEA, Dr. Rosemary Morrow.  

“We are so proud that Alison has been honored at the state level for her excellence in social studies supervision,” said Lauren Thompson, Tomball ISD Director of ELA and Social Studies. “Her dedication to ensuring an aligned curriculum from kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as embedding literacy connections seamlessly into the content, has contributed to her being recognized as a leader among leaders.”

Reed has served education for 17 years and has been a valued member of Team Tomball for the last seven years as a K-12 Social Studies Content Specialist. In addition to serving as a content supervisor in the subject of social studies, Reed dedicates time to professional development. She is currently the Vice President of TSSSA (Texas Social Studies Supervisor Association), a committee member for TXCSS (Texas Council of Social Studies) – Professional Learning Committee, has served on Social Studies TEKS Revision workgroups, and has served on Texas Educator Certification Examination Program Standard Setting Committee for TEA.

“Receiving the title of Social Studies Supervisor of the Year for the State of Texas is an honor that signifies my commitment not only to the students, teachers, and staff at Tomball ISD but also to the advancement and advocacy of Social Studies education statewide,” said Reed. “This award acknowledges the dedicated efforts invested in developing engaging Social Studies curriculum, providing impactful leadership, and fostering meaningful professional development accessible to both educators and students. It reflects a desire to share my passion for Social Studies and education with others. I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to continue to grow through collaboration with fellow educational leaders and teachers across our district, region, and state. Being recognized for a role that I both value and love, while emphasizing my devotion to education and Social Studies, is a cherished acknowledgment that will forever hold a special place in my heart.”
