HCDE staff gathered on Wednesday to honor the contributions of HCDE trustees during a lunchtime School Board Recognition Reception.
Each January, school districts across the nation celebrate the dedication of school board trustees for their commitment to students. The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month, coordinated by the Texas Association of School Boards, is “Forward, Together,” which highlights the collaboration among school leaders, teachers, and parents on behalf of students.
“I want you to recognize the power of the team of eight because I’ve come to actualize that myself this year,” said County Superintendent James Colbert Jr. “Think about all the changes we have seen at Harris County Department of Education, and some of them rapidly. It speaks to the tone and tenor of this group and how much they care about this organization.”
A video with messages from HCDE students and employees highlighting trustees’ contributions was played for attendees. Board members were then presented with certificates of appreciation and branded apparel.
