January designated School Board Recognition Month
Submitted by Ferris Independent School District
FERRIS - January is designated as School Board Recognition Month.
Ferris Independent School District is joining more than 1,000 school districts across the state to say "thank you" to our school board members for the countless hours donated attending meetings and making decisions affecting the entire school community.
Among the many qualities, our board members demonstrate on a daily basis is their firm commitment to our students and teachers.
They are committed to finding whatever it takes to foster an excellent classroom learning atmosphere.
"Not only does our board meet monthly, they attend academic team competitions, school plays, ball games and other activities.
"You’ll see our board members actively involved in the school community," said Superintendent Mike Bodine.
Ferris’ seven-member board is responsible for 2,428 students.
The board oversees an annual budget of 26 million dollars and employs 356 staff members.
Trustees in FISD and their terms of service are: Thomas Griffith, president, 12 years of service; Robert Scott, vice president, 17 years of service; Lee Longino, secretary, 26 years of service; Duane Yee, 19 years of service; Jorge Lopez, 4 years of service; Bobby Lindsey, 18 years of service; and Elizabeth Muñoz, 9 years of service.
I hope everyone will join us in thanking them for their service to our children and our future.
Trustees will be recognized during the regularly scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. in the board room at the Ferris I.S.D. Administration Building.
