The school board meeting is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m in the school administration building at 108 North School Road in Three Rivers, Texas. The men and women serving on the Three Rivers ISD board include Secretary Diana Pullin, President David Saenz, Vice-President Gilbert Ruiz, Lee Benham, Richard Tanguma, Arlon Retzloff and Karl Arnst.
Governor Rick Perry 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 Three Rivers 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.
“Texans benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 7,000 men and women across the state. 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,” said TRISD’s Supt. Mac Johanson.
“Even though we are making a special effort during January to show appreciation to our school board members, we recognize that their work reflects a year-round commitment,” Johanson said. “Every day 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,” he said.
