Aug. 15—Ector County ISD announced it has received an Above and Beyond Silver level Aetna Workplace Well-being Award. This award recognizes the district's strong commitment to providing workplace well-being resources, programs and support for employees, a press release said.
"I'm proud to be part of a school district that emphasizes well-being," Yolanda Gordon, ECISD Director of Benefits/Risk Management, said in the release.
