They may not be faster than a speeding bullet, nor stronger than a locomotive like Superman, but local school board members are Super Heroes to our county’s four independent school districts.

January is School Board Appreciation Month and this year’s theme was that of Super Heroes.

Jourdanton’s students drew different characters and labled the names of the school board members.

They also will receive personalized red jackets. An appreciation dinner was also served prior to the school board meeting.

In Pleasanton, personalized jackets were given to the members as well as a dinner held before their meeting. The Pleasanton Primary also brought cupcakes for the members.

Poteet’s school board received all sorts of SWAG. Various goodies, tote bags as well as Super Hero posters were displayed in the meeting area.

In Charlotte, Superintendent Mario Sotelo presented each member with a certificate of appreciation. The certificates stated, “for dedicated leadership in public education and continuing service to the children of this community.” Each board member also received a goodie bag.

These members give their time freely and care about teachers, adminstrators and most importantly, the future of our children.

Thank you to all who serve our county school districts.
