January is School Board Recognition Month, and West ISD has joined the Texas Association of School Boards and other districts across the state to honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for Texas school children and public schools. School board members tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They provide vision and leadership in their roles as advocates and always stand up for public education and guard against anything that takes away from our children or undermines our public schools.
The current West ISD Board Members are: Dr. Larry Sparks (President), Mr. Mike Gerik (Vice-President), Ms. Leigh Crawshaw (Secretary), Mr. Ken Sykora, Dr. John Crowder, and Mrs. Holly Willis.
It’s more important than ever before that our community supports public education in order to ensure today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell our wonderful Board Members "thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community." Let them know West supports them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated. For additional information about the School Board Appreciation Month festivities, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
