January of each year is School Board Appreciation Month. While their service is appreciated year round, students, faculty and community members honored the Humble ISD Board of Trustees with gratitude for their hard work and dedication at the Board of Trustees meeting held on Tuesday, January 10.
Greeting each board member as they took their seat for the meeting were commemorative photo books featuring photos of Trustees at various events, as well as notes and artwork submitted by students from Bear Branch, Fall Creek and Timbers Elementary Schools and from Timberwood and Kingwood Middle Schools.
The celebration continued with an Inspiring Moments video created by the Audio Video Production students at Kingwood High School. Featuring students, parents and staff, the Humble ISD Board of Trustees were treated to messages of gratitude. View this month’s Inspiring Moments.
