School Board Appreciation Month

January is School Board Recognition Month and La Vega 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. 
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 La Vega ISD for an annual budget of $28 million; 3142 students in grades PK through12 as well as Early College; more than 480 employees; and five 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.

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.  These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future.

The men and women serving La Vega ISD are:

Phil Bancale - 40 years of service

Randy Devorsky - 29 years of service

Henry C. Jennings - 26 years of service

Raymond Koon - 5 years of service

Myron Ridge - 1 year of service

Brenda Rocha - 2 years of service

Mildred Watkins - 22 years of service

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.
