Johnny Torres

Victoria ISD and Atzenhoffer Chevrolet are continuing to recognize a Champion of the Month throughout the summer, focusing on departments that work year-round at district campuses and facilities.

On Tuesday, July 5, Victoria ISD selected the July 2022 Champion of the Month with Johnny Torres, a network administrator in the VISD Technology Department, receiving the honor. 

VISD and Atzenhoffer Chevrolet partnered in May 2021 to highlight one VISD staff member as the Champion of the Month each month. This staff member is nominated by their peers for showing commitment to going above and beyond in everything they do.

At VISD, we know our best work is done in partnerships and groups while aiming toward a common goal. The district's goals are larger than the team's, and the team's goals are larger than the individual's. Our Champion of the Month lives this belief every day and, in turn, receives a brand new Atzenhoffer Chevrolet truck to drive around for the next month. 

When asked how it feels to have been honored with this award, Torres stated, “I am very happy and thankful. I don’t feel like I deserve this, it’s kind of surreal. I hear about employees being selected as Champion of the Month, and I never thought it would be me.”

Torres received several nominations across the district for July.

Melissa Walters commented on Torres, “Johnny always goes above and beyond in everything he does. He is a great asset to the technology department and the district as a whole. He always strives to help people solve problems. I not only consider him a fantastic teammate but a wonderful friend. Nobody deserves this honor more!!

From VISD, we thank you, Johnny, for making us #VISDProud!
