Students and teachers alike honored trustees for the Tuloso-Midway Independent School District Monday night in celebration of School Board Recognition Month.
Students from all five TMISD campuses performed various skits and song and dance routines, as well as presented artwork, for the seven school board members: board president Paul Mostella, vice president Sylvia Longoria, secretary Felix Landin Jr., vice secretary Jan Mostella, trustees Michael Alanis, Hector Del Toro and Billy Lerma.
The event was held in the Tuloso-Midway Middle School Library Monday before a scheduled school board meeting.
Superintendent Cornelio Gonzalez, who was given a one-year contract extension at the meeting, said the board works hard to ensure the school district helps students to succeed.
"Preparing today's students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task," Gonzalez said. "As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our school children."
Gov. Rick Perry proclaimed January as School Board Recognition Month back in November and said he was encouraging all Texans to "recognize the vital contributions of school boards, and the members who work tirelessly to help provide the best possible education for young Texans. Their hard work and efforts help create a bright tomorrow for the state of Texas."
