The seven member board includes Board President Heather Leggett, Vice President Tom Westhora, Secretary Joe Stooksberry, Trustee Lance Goff, Trustee Barbara Goss, Trustee Stacie Gooch and Trustee Mitch Herzog. The group shared highlights from last year and goals for 2016.
Points of interest included the opening of Bush Elementary, career options for students and additional education opportunities.
Leggett said the board’s goals for 2016 include completion of 2014 bond projects which include opening the new George W. Bush Elementary school.
“Our student population is continuing to grow,” she said. “My hope is that we are able to provide students with the best academic, extra-curricular and character education in the state of Texas.”
Westhora commented on the importance of providing options for students.
“My hope for 2016 is to continue to expose our students to more career options via our parents and community professionals,” he said.
Looking back, trustees reflected on accomplishments which they feel have helped students in various academic areas.
