Westhoff ISD students rewarded

On Friday, Jan. 15 Westhoff students who maintained an overall average of 95 and above for the first semester were rewarded with a special lunch at Eagleford Restaurant in Cuero. This was an especially exciting trip for the students because they were also able to visit over delicious food and dessert with members of the School Board. Richard Borchard, Director Client Relations, of the law firm Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLC, stopped by to chat with the students and even picked up the tab. Borchard actually had brothers and a sister attend Westhoff ISD many years ago and was happy to have the opportunity to meet with current students. Eight students were honored with this reward. Westhoff ISD is incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication these students have put forth.
