Madison students assist at NEISD board meeting
Two students from Madison High School stepped up to the podium at the regular meeting of the North East ISD Board of Trustees on April 11.
Mikayla Garcia and Daniel Perez gave the invocation and pledge to the U.S. and Texas flags for all those in attendance.
They were introduced by their principal Eric Wernli as family members joined them in the audience.
Mikayla is a senior and member of the school’s Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program, and has participated in this program since she was in seventh grade. She was joined by her parents, Teri and Louis Garcia, and her sister Dani.
Daniel Perez is an outstanding student who is president of the National Honor Society at Madison. He was joined by his mother Blanca Perez.
Both are exceptional examples of the dedicated students who attend NEISD schools. We wish them the best of luck as they approach graduation and the next step in their education.
