TISD says thanks to Luminant
Thorndale is a caring and generous community. We have much to be thankful for in Thorndale ISD. Eric Guzman of Luminant’s Diversity Council recently presented the district with six high quality backpacks for students. Katherine Ladd is the president of the council.
Guzman said that the Diversity Council and Luminant wanted to do something to help out school children. I can tell you that Lindsey Daniels and high school principal Hank Laywell were glad to see those back packs come in the door. We had several students needing backpacks to help them stay organized and get them through the school day. All of the backpacks were in the hands of students before the school day ended.
While we are on the subject of caring and generous, the district also received 12 boxes of school supplies from VFW Post 6525 in Rockdale. John Villarreal the Post quartermaster stopped by the administration office and said the post wanted to “help out kids.” Supplies included notebook paper, composition books, pens and pencils. These supplies will be put to good use by children in the schools.
In closing, the district received a letter from Coach D.W. Rutledge of the Texas High School Coaches Association education foundation. Coach Rutledge expressed his thanks to TISD Coach Brent Brevard and his coaching staff for donating $565 to the association’s benevolence fund. I have witnessed first-hand the struggles that families of athletes who suffer debilitating injuries encounter.
The generous support of our coaches and the community for this worthy cause is commendable. On behalf of the board of trustees and the entire school district, “thank you.”
