January is School Board Recognition Month and Crowell 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 Crowell ISD for an annual budget of approximately $3 million; 220 students, and more than 40 employees.
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 our community, 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 Crowell ISD are: President John Thomas, Vice President Whitney Halsell, Secretary Ruby Manney, members Joe Haynie, Doug Johnson, Ken Rowland, and April Baty
Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. We are fortunate to have school board members who possess these attributes. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for helping our kids soar to success.
