Brenda Smith, KISD parenting and intervention specialist, hands superintendent Robert Muller a check Tuesday representing the district's volunteer efforts from last summer to the end of March with 6,709 volunteers across the district's schools giving 61,891 hours worth an estimated $618,910 given a $10-an-hour wage. The district honored top campus volunteer programs and individuals in several categories.
Cavazos Elementary School in Nolanville logged the most volunteer hours this school year among KISD elementary campuses and boasted the civilian volunteer of the year, Bonita Henderson. Part of Henderson's and the school PTO's efforts resulted in fundraisers to install a fence sign that stretches across the front of the school. It spells the words "Cheetah Country" and includes this image of a cheetah head.
