AISD Celebrates School Board Recognition Month

The Arlington ISD recognized and celebrated its wonderful Board of Trustees and superintendent as a part of School Board Recognition Month at the Jan. 19 meeting. We are thankful for their dedication to the students and employees of the Arlington ISD!

The AISD Board, which oversees the 11th-largest school district in the state of Texas, has put an emphasis on being a premier school district and leader in education. In the past year, Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos and the Board have been a part of many exciting initiatives, including: the opening of two new elementary schools in McNutt and Peach elementaries, launching the InSideOut Initiative character education program for all secondary athletics teams, creating a partnership with the University of Texas at Arlington for an AISD Teacher Academy, and being recognized by Equal Opportunity Schools for the district’s work to ensure that historically underrepresented students have the opportunity to succeed in challenging high school courses.

As the Board was thanked for its commitment and contributions to the AISD, each member was presented with framed artwork by fifth- and sixth-grade students from Bryant Elementary.

Being honored were President Jamie Sullins, Vice President Dr. Aaron Reich, Secretary John Hibbs, Assistant Secretary Kecia Mays, Polly Walton, Kristen Hudson and Bowie Hogg, along with Cavazos.
