We Appreciate Those Who Serve

Across the state of Texas, January has been declared School Board Appreciation!  This provides us the opportunity to pause for just a moment and thank our board members who serve on the Pampa Independent School District Board of Trustees.  I am grateful to these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public school. Trustees work countless hours to make public education the best it can be for every child in Pampa ISD. 


Amidst political unrest and financial constraints, these volunteers focus their work on what is best for students and staff.  They develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students.  The work is important and these board members obviously care deeply about doing the right things for the rights reasons so that Pampa schools never cease to strive for excellence. 


Our School Board members are Richard Qualls, President who has served for 8 years.  Matt Brock, Vice President,  who has served for 7 years.  Cay Warner, Secretary who has served for 9 years.  Lance DeFever who has served for 16 years.  Luis Nava, who has served for 4 years, and Denise Intemann who is currently in her first year on the Board.  We also have a vacant seat on the Board which the members will be discussing at the upcoming meeting.


On January 31st at 5:30 pm, we will celebrate our Board of Trustees with a special dinner prepared by our very own Culinary Arts students from Pampa High School.  Also, we will take a few moments at the beginning of the Board Meeting for each campus to show their appreciation for the work, the service, and the commitment our members give to our students and staff.  The next time you see one of these individuals, please thank them for the time and energy they give so that our schools will continue to improve our service to our students, staff, families, and community.  On behalf of the Pampa Independent School District students and staff, I am honored to say THANK YOU, TRUSTEES, PLEASE KNOW HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU DO!
