Governor Rick Perry has proclaimed January 2010 as School Board Recognition Month to help build awareness of the crucial role an elected board of trustees plays in our communities and schools. Plan now to show your school board members you appreciate their dedication and hard work. They are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of our children. Recognizing board members for this commitment and sacrifice takes a combined effort on the part of all they serve: administrators, school staff, students, and the community. Even though showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of the designated School Board Recognition Month in January assures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve. Such recognition can encourage veteran trustees to continue to make the commitment board service requires; other citizens might be encouraged to get involved in the schools and make positive change.
San Saba ISD is so very fortunate to have seven very loyal, unselfish and caring individuals willing to serve and provide guidance for this District. Our school board members are President, Darrin Barker; Vice-President, Marcie Maxcey; Secretary, Kim Kirk; and members Michael Deans, Angela Johnson, Susie Nettleship, and Bob Whitten. These individuals take an active part in school events as they rarely miss an occasion to see students of San Saba ISD excel in their academics or sports events. School board members do not get compensated for their service. The only payment they get is our thanks as school employees and your pat on the back. Being a school board member is not for the weak or faint of heart. It takes a broad minded person to seek the good for the whole, not just a few and we are lucky to have such members.
Take this opportunity to help acknowledge thousands of public servants who make the time to share their vision and voice about the future of Texas children.
