School Board Recognition Month

Thank a School Board Member !

January is School Board Recognition Month and Glen Rose ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools.

“School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child,” said Superintendent Wayne Rotan. In a climate of change and challenge, they develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students. They bear responsibility and oversight in Glen Rose ISD for an annual budget of $28,052,392 million; 1,800 students, in grades PK to 12; more than 260 employees; and four campuses.

“Preparing today’s students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our schoolchildren,” said Rotan.

“We proudly salute these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of our community’s children and families,” said Rotan. “These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future,” he said.

The men and women serving Glen Rose ISD are: Kelley Snodgrass (16 years), Tom Lounsberry (15 years), Andy Snow (10 years), Wade Busch (14 years), Kevin Taylor (12 years), Brady Brown (11 years), and Jason Dillard (4 years).

“Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for helping our kids soar to success,” he said.
