Students Thank Trustees for Their Service


by Ronnie Zamora/LFCISD

At many Los Fresnos CISD Board of Trustees meetings, students are recognized by the Board for their achievements.

On Monday, it was the board’s turn to be recognized.

As part of Texas School Board Recognition Month, trustees were recognized for their dedication and service by students from the 14 schools in the district. They used the seven letters in the word “Falcons” to describe the seven trustees. Two students honored each trustee.

Gift baskets were also presented to each trustee. The Falcon mascot from Los Fresnos High School was also present. The students had big cardboard letters and spelled “Falcons” and took a photo with the trustees.

Trustees approved five teachers new to the District. They included:

  • Sabrina Elizabeth Rios, Laureles Elementary
  • Sean Ryan Moran, Los Fresnos Elementary
  • Aleyda Santoyo, Palmer-Laakso Elementary
  • Betty Hughes, Liberty Memorial Middle School
  • Aleyda Santoyo, Liberty Memorial Middle School

Trustees also heard the Auditor’s Report and annual financial statements for the fiscal year that ended Aug. 31, 2017. Carlos Cascos, partner in the accounting firm of Patillo, Brown and Hill L.L.P., told the board that there were no audit findings to report, and that all opinions were unmodified and clean.

In other action, trustees approved the following:

  • Minutes for Meeting/s held on December 11, 2017.
  • Budget Amendment #5 for Fiscal Year 2018.
  • Ad-Valorem Tax Refunds for the Month of December, 2017
  • Agreements/Contracts with Independent Contractors for Professional Services – Insurance Consultants
  • Bids/Offers received from the Tax Resale held November 7, 2017, for properties struck off to Cameron County for itself and other taxing jurisdictions and to approve a resolution authorizing the tax resale.
