The meeting kicked off by recognizing our Board of Trustees, as January is School Board Appreciation Month. Campuses created signs of appreciation that were displayed in the Board Room. An anonymous donor gifted each Board Member with a branded quarter zip pullover, and the following students presented gifts to the Board from Shady Grove PTO: Aurora King, Uriah McFerrin, Annika Fowler, Ryker Neely, Nash Neely, and Aubrey Chaney.
The Board recognized the January students of the month for Burnet High School. They include Victoria Canales who was selected from the Art Department and Eileen Crist who was selected from the Theatre Department.
The Board approved the hiring of Ben Speer as Head Football Coach. Please join me in congratulating Ben. You can read more about the hiring in the press release at the end of the Board Meeting Recap.
