Celebrating Board of Trustees for School Board Recognition Month

January is School Board Recognition Month and Mission CISD celebrated the Board of Trustees for their continuous efforts. They were recognized by Ms. Cris Valdez, Interim Superintendent,  last night for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to our students. The members are at the forefront when making decisions that positively impact the district. A reception was held in their honor and many administrators were in attendance to convey their gratitude.


“This is a celebration to honor you, to say thank you on behalf of myself and the MCISD family,” said Cris Valdez, Interim Superintendent. “Without you, we cannot do what we do, so thank you for the courage, determination, the grit, the ganas that you have to keep doing what you are doing. We recognize that it is not easy.”


The Board of Trustees were presented with numerous gifts from the campuses that included; hand written letters, beautiful and colorful paintings, cards of thanks, goodies, cups, and other items. Most of the gifts were created by the students in appreciation for the Board Members for all that they do for them and for the district.


“Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference. Please join us as we applaud these local leaders for helping our kids soar to success,” said Valdez.

MCISD thanks the men and women that serve as members of the Board of Trustees and they are: Patricia Y. O’Caña-Olivarez (President), Roy Vela (Vice President), Petra B. Ramirez (Secretary), Minnie R. Rodgers (Board Member), Charlie Garcia III (Board Member), Dr. Sonia M. Treviño (Board Member), Jerry Zamora (Board Member).
