North East ISD is partnering up with public school districts throughout Bexar County to give surrounding communities the message that wonderful, life-changing things are happening in our schools every day. Supporters came together on Nov. 8 in the front of Jefferson High School to unveil the Go Public campaign’s mission.

Led by Bexar County’s 15 Independent School Districts and co-chaired by Josue Robles, CEO of USAA, Kim Bowers, CEO of CST Brands and Chris Nielsen, President of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas, Go Public is inspiring people across the region to take a step back and celebrate the positive and continuous impact public schools make on all of us.

“Over the years my kids have had some incredible teachers. They’ve helped shape them, they’ve helped inspire them and they’ve opened their eyes to a larger world,” said Kim Bowers, whose three children have and are currently attending North East schools. “Teachers are truly the biggest strength of public schools and the teachers here in Bexar County have an average of 12 years of experience and over one-third have master’s degrees.

The first public school in the United States opened its doors in the mid-15th century; needless to say, independent school districts have come a long way since then. San Antonio public schools are the lifeblood of our community as they aim to produce future professionals that will lead the way in a multitude of career fields.

Board of Trustees Sandy Hughey and Shannon Grona, along with Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, superintendent of schools, were on hand to show their support.  Bexar County public schools have proven that they are strong and vital to our community.
