The Robstown Independent School District Board of Trustees had their final interview for the 2016 Texas Outstanding Board of the Year at the Texas Association of School Administrators Convention in Houston, Texas on Sept. 23. 

While they didn't make the final selection, they were among dozens of nominees during the General Session at the George R. Brown Convention Center. 

TASA created the School Board Awards Program in 1971 to recognize school boards whose dedication and ethical service have made a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas. It is an excellent way for districts to recognize their hard-working, dedicated board members.

Each year, regional selection committees submit up to two nominations for state competition, one from districts with fewer than 1,000 students and one from districts with more than 1,000 students.
