March 27, 2019 - Today, March 27, is one of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas' Honor Days - Goliad Heroes Day.

Following the fall of the Alamo, the Mexican Army, under the command of General Santa Anna, attacked Colonel James W. Fannin's men at Goliad. Fannin was forced to surrender and on March 27, 1836, 320 prisoners were executed, the largest loss of live in the cause of Texas independence. "Remember Goliad" joined with "Remember the Alamo" as the battle cries heard at the battle of San Jacinto.

The DRT William Carroll Crawford Chapter encourage everyone to fly your Texas flag to honor the heroes of Goliad.

March 27, 2019 - The TISD family is saddened by the passing of Martha Boren.  Mrs. Boren’s death is the result of complications from heart surgery a few weeks ago.  

Mrs. Boren’s career spanned almost three full decades at Tenaha ISD where she served most recently as the Director of Academic Affairs.  Her work has been vital in the survival of our small district through her efforts to acquire grants and maintain compliance of all federal and state funded programs. 

Previous to her role in Central Administration, Mrs. Boren served as a Principal, and as a Business Teacher over her long career.  The Tiger Family has lost a “lynch pin” to the success of the students at TISD.  Please keep her husband Wesley and daughter Lesley in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time. 

March 27 2019 - April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. To help spread awareness, we are encouraging everyone to hang a blue bow on the door, window and/or inside your business for the month of April. Our local florists have generously agreed to make the large blue bows for $12.00 each. All you have to do is call one of our local florists, listed below, and order a bow. They will even deliver them for you. It is very easy.

The Annual Butterfly Release, sponsored by the Children’s Advocacy Center will be held April 17th on the Historic Courthouse lawn at 4:00pm. It would be wonderful if everyone could have a beautiful blue bow displayed before the Butterfly Release.

Thank you to our participating florists: Center Floral, Darcie Hayes at 598-2413; Hughes Florist, Heather Moody at 598-9949; Southern Seasons, Shana Brittain at 598-5009 and Watson Florist, Yondi Watson at 598-2402.
