For the Joe Martin Memorial Scholarship - What happens when a good man dies? When Joe Martin died, the people of the Quinlan-Tawakoni area began a scholarship in his name because he truly cared about QISD students having the opportunity to further their education. Our community knew that would be the best way to honor him. The $1000 scholarship has been given every year since 1994. The story of Joe Martin is one that encourages all of us to work hard and care about people, because we will all leave some kind of legacy. He left a legacy of dedication to family, friends, and education. Joe Martin was born January 14, 1950 in Dallas. He received the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 13. He attended Texas A&M Commerce where he received his B.S. degree in 1972, and his M.E. in 1976. He was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, where he served as staff sponsor while he worked on his Master's degree. He moved to the Quinlan-Tawakoni area when he graduated college to serve as a science teacher and coach for Quinlan Middle School; eventually he moved to the position of assistant principal during the years of 1975-1983. He became the first principal of Cannon Elementary. The next step was assistant superintendent, and finally superintendent in 1993. He worked his way through Quinlan ISD because the question he would always ask himself was, "What's best for the kids?" He was professional in all that he did - whether coaching for QISD or QSA, whether speaking in front of all the QISD teachers or talking to a student about future plans, whether being on the administrative council for First United Methodist Church of Quinlan or going on a buying frenzy at Christmas for children who didn't have anything. His children are both graduates of QISD. His daughter Jill currently teaches 1st grade at Cannon, and his son Jeff is a Technical Support Manager for a Dallas company. His wife Jan taught in QISD for 20 years and began the PAL program. Joe Martin was a good person and that is who this scholarship is for - good young people, destined to make a positive difference in the world. Is that you? Respond below with how you embody the spirit and legacy of Joe Martin.
