BISD salutes board members

Contributed

Texans benefit every day from the tireless work and countless hours contributed by a group of more than 7,300 men and women in communities across the state. These local volunteers are elected by their constituents and receive no compensation for their work as public servants. These men and women are the school board members of Texas.
January is School Board Recognition Month and Bandera ISD will take this opportunity to thank these local leaders for devoting time to support public education and serve our local schools.
"It's more important than ever before that the public shows support for public education. Board members face critical challenges in their roles as advocates, and they will continue to stand strong and guard against anything that takes away from our children and undermines our public schools," said Regina Howell, Bandera ISD superintendent.
"Even though we are making a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board members, we realize their many contributions reflect year-round commitment. They generously give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our local schools are made by representatives of this community, people who are close to our schools and know our teachers, parents, and students. In these challenging times, they face difficult choices and shoulder critical responsibilities. Their ultimate goal is always focused on the future success of the children in our district," Howell said.
Members of the BISD board of trustees are Don Miller, Laurie Neff, Dr. Barbara Skipper, Bo Mansfield, Greg Hicks, Rich Groomer, and Laurie Palacios.
