Palacios ISD Celebrates School Board Recognition Month
Palacios ISD board members were recognized at the board meeting last night with praises and tokens of appreciation. “Our school board members are volunteers who shoulder critical responsibilities and often make difficult choices for our district, all without pay. Their goal is always focused on the future success of the children in our district,” Dr. Glenn said. “Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”
Serving as a link between the community and classroom, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. The Palacios ISD board is responsible for an annual budget of over $14 million, over 1380 students, over 200 staff, and four campuses. Board members serving Palacios ISD are: Steve Stuhrenberg, 25 years; Peter Zamarripa, 15 years; Fabian Marroquin, 6 years; Peter Estraca, 5 years; Rob Kessler, 5 years; Brandon Bowers, 4 years; and Lisa Harrison, 3 years. “It’s more important than ever before that communities support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” Dr. Glenn said.
