EPISD’s Bejarano Named Texas School Nurse Administrator of the Year

Alana Bejarano, the El Paso Independent School District’s Director of Health Services, earned the 2017 Texas School Nurse Administrator of the Year title for her dedication to the health of the students of the District.

The award is the latest in a series of state-level honors EPISD staff has received.

“Words can’t describe how proud I feel to represent the hard work and dedication of the EPISD nurses and health services staff,” said Bejarano, who has been with EPISD for a decade. “The recognition I am receiving is because of the daily work of the nurses in the District and their tireless efforts to improve student outcomes.”

Bejarano, who has been a nurse for 20 years, will receive the award in November during the Texas School Nurses Organization conference in The Woodlands.

“This award could not have gone to a more deserving person. She exhibits a passion for helping others and a commitment to ensuring the wellbeing of all EPISD students,” said Assistant Superintendent of Special Education and Special Programs Stacy Venson. “Under her leadership, EPISD continues to provide excellent health services for our students.”

Norma Luna, coordinator for Health Services, said Bejarano exceeds the criteria of the award through her dedicated leadership and commitment to excellence.

“We are very proud of her and are excited that she is being recognized for all of her hard work,” Luna said. “Alana is the hardest working person I have ever worked with. She sets the example of compassionate care for students for all school nurses. She is willing to help the school nurses in our district with anything that they need help with. She is definitely deserving of this honor.”

Bejarano said she was grateful for the honor, but that the work she does on a daily basis is her reward.

“I absolutely love working with our nurses and educators and I love working with students,” she said. “The best part of everyday is getting a mix of the great people and things happening in EPISD.”
