'Gold T's' raising weight bar

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Yorktown Independent School District is known as the Black and Gold and it was not until recent events that the “Gold Ts” (7th and 8th grader wearing gold t-shirts) filled in nearly half the space of the weight room after school. 

Yorktown athletic director Ty Robinson said, “All really good programs have an after school program for athletics. You can’t get the work done during regular hours. This program has grown into it’s own thing.”

The after school program is strength and conditioning. It began when coach Robinson came into the district and saw that his football players were not very big or very strong. After talking with his coaching staff, they came up with a plan.

“We can’t control if we don’t get great talent, size or speed. The only thing we can control is how hard we work. [From what I have seen here] no one will outwork Yorktown,” said Robinson.

Trustees seek help with differences

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

With recent events of two school superintendents resigning before their three year contract ended and other controversies, the Yorktown Independent School District trustees recognize they have some unsettled business within the ranks. In an effort to resolve some of the differences that may lie from within, they have invited Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) to do a workshop on ‘Board Building’ and to identify the roles and responsibilities of the board and superintendent. The workshop was held on Jan. 12.

Mark Weischwill, president of the YISD board said, “This was initiated by the conflict and controversy we have in the district. Until the board itself either agrees to disagree and is on the same page, I do not know how we can hire and keep a superintendent. All the board members agreed that we need to air out our differences and try to come together for what is best for the district and the students.”
