“School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child,” said Thomas Lane, Superintendent. In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students. They bear responsibility and oversight in Kenedy ISD for an annual budget of $15.4 million; 708 students, in grades PK to 12; 126 employees and three campuses.
“Preparing today’s students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our schoolchildren,” said Thomas Lane.
“We proudly salute these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of community’s children and families,” said Thomas Lane. “These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future,” he said.
The men and woman serving Kenedy ISD are Edward Monson, President; Mary Kiesling, Vice-President; Alma Danmier, Secretary; Jaime Albiar, Demetrio Garcia, Elisa Rahmes, and RoseMary Vickery.
“Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for truly caring about our kids,” he said.
