Students of Alice ISD's schools thanked the school board for their dedication to their education and the hard decisions they face as board members.

At Monday night's regular meeting, students, faculty and staff, as well as the district's parents packed the board room for School Board Appreciation with a superhero theme.

January is board of trustees recognition month nationwide.

School board members in attendance were Anjanette Benavides, Mike Cochran, Servando Garza Jr., Lee Ramon, Herman Arellano III and Mark Dominguez.

Board members honored the school board members with songs, poems, letters, videos, posters and homemade cards.

"Really you guys are the superheroes," school board member Mike Cochran said. "We're just trying to help you get where you need to be."

Board members also received goody baskets.

The members were given a certificate of appreciation by Alice ISD Superintendent Dr. Grace Everett.

"We really appreciate everybody from administration, students and especially the parents and their dedication to their students," Cochran said.
