PINE TREE ISD RECOGNIZES BOARD FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE- 2015 SCHOOL BOARD APPRECIATION MONTH


Longview – January is School Board Appreciation Month and the Pine Tree Independent School District is joining other districts across the state to thank their school board members for their dedication and willingness to serve as advocates for our children and public schools.

“Even though we are making a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board members, we realize their many contributions reflect a year-round commitment.  They generously give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our school district are made by representatives of this community, people who are close to our schools and know our teachers, parents, and students,” said Dr. TJ Farler, PTISD Superintendent.

“As elected officials, they are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of Texas schoolchildren. Board members shoulder critical responsibilities and often make difficult choices.  Their ultimate goal is always focused on the future success of the children in our district,” Farler said.

“It is more important than ever before that the community supports public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow.  Our board members provide vision and leadership in their roles as advocates, and they will continue to stand up for public education,” she said
.
The board was honored with a board appreciation dinner this week prepared and served by the PTHS Culinary Arts students.  This year each campus is showing their appreciation to our board members with special invitations to breakfast and lunch on their campuses, handmade cards, posters and placemats as well as personalized photo posters and recognition plaques and videos.

Board members serving the Pine Tree Independent School District are:  Pat Noon, President; Kerri Daugbjerg, Vice-President; Cynthia Hellen, Secretary; Will Adamson, Amy Brown, Terre Dunn and Charley Peck.

PTISD recognizes these dedicated volunteers for their efforts to make a difference and their unfailing commitment to the continued success of our students now and in the future.
