Edinburg city leaders on Tuesday, October 8, joined Rep. Terry Canales, D-Edinburg, in publicly congratulating the Edinburg school board for being named the Texas Outstanding School Board of the Year for 2013.
The prestigious award, bestowed on Friday, September 27 by the Texas Association of School Administrators/Texas Association of School Boards, recognizes outstanding Texas school boards for their commitment to school children and their communities.
Back home, the local school board’s statewide achievement is being praised, both as a reflection of the high quality of public education available in Edinburg, and in tribute to the school district’s elected and appointed leadership for helping steer a successful course for the community.
“I am fortunate, humbled, and honored to represent one of the most successful districts in all of Texas and I, along with the citizens of Edinburg, are blessed by the hard work of this school board,” Canales addressed trustees, administrators, faculty and staff at the beginning of the board’s regularly-scheduled public meeting.
