January is School Board Recognition Month, and La Porte ISD paid tribute to its own Board of Trustees at the regular meeting of the Board on Jan.15.
Banners, cards, a video and other creations by students expressed gratitude to these local leaders for supporting public education and serving LPISD schools. Trustees also received certificates and a calendar including photos from all 12 district campuses.
The men and women who serve on the LPISD Board are among more than 7,300 individuals in communities across the state who are elected to serve in this role. Texans benefit from the tireless work and countless hours contributed by these public servants who are committed to the success of the children in their communities.
"The members of our Board of Trustees devote many hours to attending training and meetings, participating in school district activities and studying information to help them make decisions that are in the best interests of the students we serve," said Lloyd W. Graham, LPISD superintendent. "They are volunteers who commit this time to our district simply because they care deeply about the children and families of La Porte ISD and want to provide them with the best education system possible."
