January is School Board Recognition Month and Friendswood ISD is celebrating its trustees for

their dedication and commitment to the district and its students.

The theme of this year’s School Board Recognition Month is Forward, Together, which

highlights the collaboration among school leadership, teachers and parents on behalf of students.

“Recognizing the efforts of our volunteer school board is so important because of all the hard

work trustees put in to making our district a success,” Superintendent Thad Roher said.

Dan Troxell, executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards, applauded the efforts

of trustees in providing leadership and good governance so that school districts can focus on

educating the 5.4 million public school children in their care.

“Texas school boards are critical to the success of students and the future of Texas,” Troxell said.

“Boards lead their districts in the right direction, providing oversight, setting goals, overseeing

the budget, and selecting and evaluating the superintendent. These volunteers serve for the

betterment of their local schools and communities.”

Board members serving Friendswood ISD are Laura Seifert (Secretary), Niki Rhodes, Rebecca

Hillenburg, Tony Hopkins (President), Beau Egert, Ralph Hobratschk and David Montz (Vice

President).
