The Banquete ISD Board of Trustees was named the Texas School Board of the Year by the Texas Rural Education Association at its recent summer conference. The BISD Board received this statewide recognition by effectively addressing the needs of students and personnel in a productive, professional team leadership style.

“Without a doubt, the BISD Board is student-centered and works professionally and diligently to support all aspects of the district,” Superintendent Dr. Max Thompson said. “These seven men and women are deserving of this statewide honor because they absolutely keep the best interest of students, staff, and the community in mind as they serve with teamwork mentality.”

Established in 1991, TREA pursues education excellence by providing legislative representation at the state and national level to enhance, promote and recognize the quality of rural schools.
