Board Meeting Recap

September Board Meeting
Summary
The Board of Trustees met on September 19, 2022 for their regular August Board Meeting. Included below are the most notable information and action items.
 
The pledges to the flags were led by the following RJ Richey Elementary students: Blu Marshall, Landry Davis, Aubree Guenter, Skyla Davis, and Remi Grace Evans.
 
The meeting kicked off by recognizing students of the month at Burnet High School and Quest High School.
Burnet High School Students of the Month for September are Brett Nelson and Jennifer Suarez. These students were selected from the Math department.
 
The Quest High School Student of the Month for August/September is Ava Viergutz.
 
The Burnet CISD Board of Trustees has created an annual award to be given to any Burnet CISD staff member or board member who exemplifies Spirit, Pride, and Honor through their actions, words, and volunteerism. The honoree, through the way they live their life, will demonstrate to others what it means to make Spirit, Pride, and Honor come to life.
  
The inaugural recipient of the award is Board President Andy Feild, and from this day forward the award will be named the, “Andy Feild Spirit, Pride, and Honor Award of Distinction.”
 
Andy Feild is the epitome of Spirit, Pride, and Honor. As a Burnet High School student, Andy was selected by the faculty as the 1965-1966 Best All Around Male Student. Participation in extra-curricular activities along with his scholastic achievement were some of the factors considered when the faculty selected him. Andy served as a captain on the football team and as the president of the FFA. He was also in the cast of the One Act Play. Fast forward to 1997 when Andy began serving on the Burnet CISD Board of Trustees. Andy has served on the Board for 25 years, and has served as President of the Board since 2005. Burnet CISD is the District it is today because of Andy’s life-long commitment to the District and to Spirit, Pride, and Honor.
