Thank you School Board

January is School Board Recognition Month and Kilgore ISD will take this opportunity
to thank these local leaders for devoting time to support public education and serve our
local schools.

“It is more important than ever before that the public shows support for public education.
Board members face critical challenges in their roles as advocates, and they will continue
to stand strong and guard against anything that takes away from our children and
undermines our public schools,” said Dennis Williams, Interim Superintendent.

“Even though we are making a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board
members, we realize their many contributions reflect a year-round commitment. They
generously give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our local schools
are made by representatives of this community, people who are close to our schools and
know our teachers, parents, and students. In these challenging times, they face difficult
choices and shoulder critical responsibilities. Their ultimate goal is always focused on
the future success of the children in our district,” Mr. Williams said.

“Our district benefits from the contributions of the dedicated efforts of these local
citizens who truly care about our kids. Serving as a crucial link between the community
and classroom, this board is responsible for an annual budget of over $30 million, 3900
students,  536 employees, and 5 campuses. We applaud their willingness to serve as
advocates for our children and the voice of public education,” Mr. Williams said.
