Harlandale ISD celebrates School Board Recognition Month

Harlandale ISD will join 1,025 school districts throughout Texas to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent Gerardo Soto announced Monday, Jan. 6.

“Our school board members are volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to the district and often make difficult choices for our district, all without pay. Their ultimate goal is centrally focused on the future success of the children in our district,” Soto said. “Joining other districts across the state of Texas in celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

Serving as a link between the community and classroom, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. Harlandale ISD’s board is responsible for an annual budget of $152 million, 14,000 students, 2,111 employees and 24 campuses.

Board members serving Harlandale ISD are President Ricardo Moreno (District 7), Vice President Juan Mancha (District 1), Secretary Esequiel “Zeke” Mendoza (District 3), Member Christine Carrillo (District 2), Member Norma Cavazos (District 4), Member Elaine Anaya-Ortiz (District 5) and Member Elizabeth F. Limon (District 6).

“It’s more important than ever before that communities like that of Harlandale ISD support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children at Harlandale ISD and giving back to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their service is truly appreciated,” Soto said.
