Governor Rick Perry has proclaimed January as School Board Recognition Month to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our communities. The George West ISD is joining with other districts throughout the state to thank board members for caring so much about the future of every child enrolled in our public schools.

These public servants are elected to serve by local citizens and receive no compensation for their tireless efforts. School board members are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their actions and decisions affect the present and future lives of all our children.

Even though January is the designated month to show appreciation to school board members, we recognize their work reflects a year-round commitment. Trustees demonstrate strength and dedication as they focus on excellence for their district programs, their teachers, and most importantly their students. They unselfishly contribute their time and talents toward the advancement of public schools, and represent a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision making in education.

The men and women serving George West ISD are: Cheri Dee Moore, Board President; Cosme Arciba, Board Vice-President; Josie Chapline, Board Secretary; Mackey Alvarez, Board Assistant Secretary; Jimmy Moore, Board Member; Tim Cobb, Board Member; and Sam Keach, Board Member.
