January 10, 2018 — January is School Board Recognition Month and Tenaha Independent School District 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,” stated Scott Tyner, Superintendent of Schools. 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 Tenaha Schools for an annual budget of $7,414,067 million; 579 students, in grades from Early Childhood to 12th grade; more than 100 employees, and serves 1 (one) campus.
“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 their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our schoolchildren,” states Scott Tyner, Superintendent of Schools.
“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,” states Mr. Tyner, Superintendent of Schools.
The men and women serving Tenaha Independent School District are: Aaron Roland-President, Ronald Samford-Vice-President, Vickie Jernigan-Secretary, Robert Barton-Board Member, David Fallin-Board Member; Joe Anderson-Board Member; and Tracy Collins-Board Member.
