Recently, Alice ISD honored the district's volunteers during a special luncheon. The school volunteers sat to a lunch at the Alice ISD Central Office for a pat on the back for the more than 730 hours calculated from only some of the campuses.

According to Marta Salazar, parental involvement coordinator, many campus activities would be impossible without the help of the volunteers while also saving the district more than $5,000 for the work they do.

Volunteers received awards, lunch and gifts.
