January is School Board Recognition Month

Texas has more than five million students in its public schools. That is five million young minds from about five years old to about 18 years old, and the state is attracting even more. Every year, the student population increases by about 85,000 additional students.
 
Those impressionable young people depend on the adults in Texas to provide for them. They need shelter and food and nurturing and an education. Who will step up to see that all the children, not just the ones in our own households have what they need in their schools?
 
In Texas, more than 7,200 generous people have offered to help. These are people who receive no pay for their dedicated efforts. These are people who not only volunteer but go through the process of standing up for public education. They are locally elected school board members. They are your neighbors, and they care.

'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.
