The Blanco Independent School District is joining the other 14,885 school districts throughout the United States in celebrating January as “School Board Recognition Month.” Serving on our local school board are: Matt Herden (President), Mary Ann Weaver (Vice-President), Troy Immel (Secretary), Kirk Felps, Charles Riley, Bernie San Miguel, and Darrel Wagner.
“These men and women volunteer countless hours of unpaid time not only providing the best possible education for our 984 students, but also serving as the corporate board of directors for one of our community’s largest employers,” Dr. Buck Ford, Blanco ISD superintendent, said.
“As elected leaders, they represent our community in their continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making for our public schools,” Ford said. “Too often the efforts of school board members go unrecognized and unrewarded.”
“Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation for our school board members, we recognize their contributions reflect a year-round effort on their part. They are dedicated individuals who are committed to improving student achievement and to fighting for the best for all of our students,” Ford said.
School board members were recognized and honored by representatives from the district’s campuses at last Monday night’s school board meeting.
