This is the image for the news article titled Morrow is Best of the Best in the State 2022In the Fall of 2021, our Brazosport ISD Director of Safety, Security and Emergency Management Ty Morrow was named a School Safety Spotlight recipient for “making a significant contribution to safety and security through personal initiative, commitment, strong advocacy efforts, and leadership.” As part of his Fall spotlight award, he was then considered for the 2021-2022 overall individual service award revealed this June at the Texas School Safety Center Conference in San Antonio. We are so excited but not surprised to announce Ty Morrow as the state of Texas Overall Individual Service Award winner!

The Texas School Safety Spotlight Program is coordinated by the Texas School Safety Center to recognize districts and schools that foster education and learning through safe and secure campuses.

Ty Morrow brings nearly forty years of public service, with a concentration in law enforcement, security, and education to his role. Ty coordinates with 19 campus principals, 33 assistant principals, 1,800 teachers and staff, and 11,500 students to ensure they are keenly aware of all safety, security, and emergency management protocols for the district. Mr. Morrow stays abreast of best practices in the field of school safety and security, follows emerging trends, and reviews legislative changes for new requirements and impacts on district operations.

His unique set of experiences creates a sense of credibility and trust from the various entities within the district. Because of his extensive law enforcement background, BISD police officers and the district’s safety specialists trust him and have confidence in his knowledge and skills. Because he has been a paraprofessional and a special education teacher, teachers and paraprofessionals know he understands their perspective and trust his guidance. Because he is heavily involved in community leadership, church activities, and mentoring programs, those in the community have relationships with him and trust him. All of these relationships influence his ability to shape safety and security measures within the schools and district.

When asked to comment about his award, Ty Morrow stated, “This award belongs to all the administration and staff from BISD, particularly the Administrative Services. None of these accomplishments would have been achieved without a TEAM EFFORT from BISD.”

Jay Whitehead, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services, affirmed, “Safety requires experience, knowledge, attention to detail, and a passion to keep students and staff safe. Mr. Morrow exemplifies those traits. Brazosport ISD's Board of Trustees and Superintendent Massey's commitment to safety is clearly exhibited in designating Mr. Morrow with a full-time focus on school safety.”

Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition and thank you for your role in keeping BISD safe.
