FLOYDADA—The month of January is dedicated to recognizing school board officials who work tirelessly to advocate for public education. Floydada CISD joins other districts across the state as they honor the many contributions that our school board members make for the students and future of our district.
School board leaders have an unfailing commitment to the success of all students. They are local citizens who make the difficult decisions that our district and community need for the benefit of each student who enters the doors of any Floydada CISD school. FCISD is true to their motto, they are highly dedicated to excellence. The service of our school board members is selfless and one that deserves to be celebrated.
“Serving on a local school board is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of rapid change and financial uncertainties. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. Overall, they represent you and take their leadership roles seriously by attending lengthy meetings; broadening their knowledge at conferences and seminars; and talking about the schools with business leaders, parents, and neighbors,” said Dr. Gilbert Trevino, Floydada CISD Superintendent.
“Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication of these local citizens who work without pay. So, each year the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) encourages communities to show appreciation to these individuals for their unfailing commitment to the success of all students. The staff and students of our district applaud our board members for their vision and voice to help shape a better tomorrow. Our children benefit every day from the hard work and long hours contributed by our trustees. Please take a moment and tell school board members thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community. Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” Trevino said.
Many FCISD students have considered the effort that our school board members have made to get our students back on track despite our current circumstances. FCISD students would like to thank the school board for all they have done. The work of each member does not go unnoticed. It is appreciated by each student who has the pleasure of calling themselves a proud Whirlwind.
“I would like to thank you for all your hard work throughout the years. I am writing on behalf of the FCISD students to thank you for the opportunity to receive higher education without cost, a newly improved facility, and great teachers. This has helped not only me but other students who do not have the opportunity to pay for their college. In the future, this opportunity could help many students brighten their future and further their education. I would like to express my gratitude for the countless hours each of you put into making our district one of a kind.” Junior Jazmin Pacheco.
“First, I would like to say thanks to the Lord for giving this opportunity and I’m very thankful for the Floydada Collegiate Independent School District for giving me the chance to learn and do dual credit this year. This is a chance for me to be more successful in life. Floydada Collegiate High School has helped me very much and I can’t thank each of you enough. Being able to work hard and have fun is amazing to do at this school.” Sophomore Izaih Alvarado.
“Thank you FCISD school board for all your hard work throughout the years. I am grateful for being able to attend a brand-new school and becoming a colligate school district. I am also thankful for the opportunity to take dual credit classes as a freshman, because being able to get a head start on my future is really amazing.” Freshman Janeisi Garza.
As a community, Floydada thanks each school board members for advocating for the future leaders of our community.
