January is School Board Appreciation Month

School Board Appreciation

January of each year is School Board Appreciation Month. While their service is appreciated year round, students, faculty and community members honored the Humble ISD Board of Trustees with gratitude for their hard work and dedication at the Board of Trustees meeting held on Tuesday, January 9.

Greeting each board member as they took their seat for the meeting were commemorative photo books featuring photos of Trustees at various events, as well as thank you notes and artwork submitted by students from Fall Creek, Humble, Pine Forest and Woodland Hills Elementary Schools; Ross Sterling Middle School; and Atascocita, Humble, Kingwood, Kingwood Park and Summer Creek High Schools.

Carson Kee, a fourth-grade student from Foster Elementary, continued the celebration by presenting his report, "What is a Board of Trustees?" Carson and his classmates detailed what a Board of Trustees is, what they do, and why they do it. Most importantly, he thanked them for their time and effort in providing an excellent education for the students of Humble ISD. Watch this Inspiring Moment here.

Representing Humble ISD high schools, students from FFA and Student Council addressed the board and thanked them for their continued support. They then presented each member with a token of appreciation.

As a personalized gesture, each board member received polo shirts from Humble High School and certificates from students in Victoria Burghard’s Scultpure Class at Atascocita High School to receive a casting of their hand to commemorate the hands that made their program possible.

Also in attendance to proclaim January as Board Appreciation Month were Kent Clingerman, representing Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner R. Jack Cagle, and Dru Gutierrez, representing Harris County Precinct 1 Commissioner Rodney Ellis.
