Jackson students represent at Board of Trustees meeting
Each month, two students are chosen to represent their school and open the North East ISD Board of Trustees regular meeting for attendees. They share an invocation and recite the pledge to the U.S. and Texas flags in front of trustees, Executive Staff and guests. It’s an honor that brings out friends, family members and cameras.
On Nov. 8, the honor was given to two outstanding students from Jackson Middle School. They were introduced by their proud principal, Erin Deason.
“We have two students with us this evening who truly represent what being a Jackson Jaguar is all about,” said Deason.
Haley Castro and Daniel Ramirez shared the duties of invocation and pledge taking turns at the podium.
Haley is a Junior PALS student, and is an athlete who participates in volleyball, basketball, soccer, track and softball. She is an Honor Roll student who takes all honors classes. She is an officer with the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), and she is a Safe School Ambassador. She will attend Legacy of Educational Excellence High School next school year.
Haley was joined that evening by her father John Castro, her mother Erica Castro, and her sister (a Jackson alumnus) Desiree Castro.
Daniel is in the AVID program, and is an athlete who participates in football, basketball, track and soccer. He is also an Honor Roll student who takes all honors classes. He will attend Legacy of Educational Excellence High School next school year.
Daniel was joined by his father Daniel Ramirez Sr., his mother Tara Robles, and his grandmother Catherine Ramirez.
