WOODSBORO – January is School Board Recognition Month and Woodsboro ISD is joining other districts across the state to gratefully acknowledge the invaluable contributions trustees make to their communities.

Woodsboro ISD School Board consists of Robbie Thomas, president; Henry Fierova, vice-president; Mandy Nixon, secretary; Jessica Blaschke, Jeff Gillespie, Ruby Martinez, and Tim Moses.

The board bears responsibility in Woodsboro for the annual budget of over $5 million, 515 students, and 88 employees.

These volunteer school board members serve countless hours working to improve public education. In difficult times, school trustees develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students.

School trustees have a tremendous responsibility, preparing today’s students-and tomorrow’s leaders-for productive roles in our society. School board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our children.

We at Woodsboro proudly join educators and community members in saluting these education advocates as they provide leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Our board is one of over 1,200 district and county boards across the state. These boards enable us to have local control of our public schools, meaning that decisions are made by local leaders who understand the community’s unique culture, values and challenges. These individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their commitment and dedication to the continuing success of our students and schools.

When you see them around the community, give them a big, “thanks.” They truly agonize over what’s in the best interests of the children of Woodsboro.

They have made some outstanding, and sometimes difficult, decisions concerning future facilities improvements, the Dome Multi-purpose Center, staffing, and preparation for the new state examination (STAAR) and Accountability System in the last few months.

Sometimes these decisions are not popular, but they are focused on the students and their current and future needs. You can always learn more about your Woodsboro Board by attending board meetings on the third Monday of each month.

Please support them with your prayers and kind words.
