In appreciation of Texas’ dedicated school board members, January 2019 is School Board Recognition Month. This is the perfect time to thank our elected trustees for their service, and to educate the community about the important role that a school board plays in shaping the lives of our children and communities. This year’s theme is blooming with potential: Planting Seeds of Success.
Some of the seeds of success the board has recently planted are the passing of the $75 million dollar bond in an election held last year.
This time last year the district was about to start the process of a bond election in which the board was involved in extensive research and meetings to ensure that the school district was fiscally responsible. Their commitment to this school district and our community is evident by the passing of the $75 million dollar bond for a new middle school, multi-purpose facility at the high school and a softball/baseball complex at the high school.
The board was involved with the decision to create an Early College High School at Lufkin High School and to partner with Angelina College and most recently partnering with the college to be a designated site. These decisions impact our students and the trajectory of their family trees by creating a college-going culture.
Our board members do much behind the scenes attending events, answering phone calls, texts and emails and do a tremendous job representing Lufkin ISD in the best light.
Thank you for your service to our staff and students.
