  • Alumni Spotlight: Reagan’s Maribel Martinez

    Posted by Evan Henson on 12/7/2022

    MARIBEL AT GRADUATION

    From student leader to city leader

    Reagan High School graduate Maribel Martinez is now a member of the City of San Antonio’s Higher Education Student Advisory Board. She’s one of 11 current college students on the board who will advise the city on ways to increase college enrollment and policy matters of interest to students.

    She’s making a difference.

    She’s a leader.

    And she’s a proud North East ISD graduate.

    “NEISD provided me with an education, leadership opportunities, responsibility and memories that will stay with me throughout my life,” said Martinez. “The lessons I have learned in the classroom, but far beyond that, have helped shape me into who I am today. If it weren’t for the teachers, counselors, administrators and staff that supported me and believed in me, I would not be who I am today. The endless leadership opportunities that I was able to be involved in and make a lasting impact on my school and community pushed me to grow as a person.”

    Maribel attended Stone Oak Elementary School and Bush Middle School and graduated from Reagan in 2022. During her time at NEISD, she took advantage of opportunities to grow as a leader. She was a freshman class officer, sophomore class officer and a member of the Student Council Community Service Committee. In addition, she was a varsity volleyball player and a Peer Assistance Leadership and Service (PALS) member.

    “Coach Kevin Hernandez was my PALS sponsor and taught me the importance of hard work, being proud of where you are from, and being compassionate and kind to others,” said Martinez. “He was taken from us too soon in 2021, but he will never be forgotten. I am so grateful to have gotten to know him and learn from him.”

  • A special thank you from Waxahachie ISD

    Posted by Lila Stanley on 12/5/2022 9:35:00 AM

    It’s no easy feat getting hundreds of students across Texas for the State Marching Contest. Not only does it take your own village – sometimes, it’s necessary to borrow one. 

    When the Waxahachie ISD marching band needed somewhere to rehearse, the Johnson High School band program opened its doors and made a big impact on their visitors. 

    Read below a letter of praise from Waxahachie ISD Director of Bands Rich Armstrong.

    “On behalf of Waxahachie ISD, I would like to say thank you for the amazing hospitality North East ISD extended to our students, parents and community while we attended the 6A State Marching Contest. 

    Jarret Lipman, his band staff, parents, and students provided the Waxahachie Marching Band with fantastic rehearsal facilities, hospitality and assistance. These resources allowed our students the opportunity to get more practice in before performing at the Alamodome that morning for the prelims of the state contest.

    The staff, students and parents were extremely courteous, kind and helpful in setting up and accommodating our ensemble. The atmosphere at CT Johnson was positive and extremely professional and our team felt at ease the entire visit.

    I cannot say enough great things about Jarrett Lipman, his staff, students and his parents. They were fantastic and made sure that we were treated well. Thank you for creating a culture where collaboration, mutual respect and professionalism are everyday occurrences.”

  • Remembering the best times of his of life...

    Posted by Evan Henson on 11/30/2022

    Pictures of Frye through the years

    It's funny how a song or a meal can instantly take you back to a particular moment—or maybe driving past your childhood home or elementary school that floods your mind with memories. Those memories become increasingly crucial after a dementia diagnosis.

    Daniel Frye III attended Walzem Elementary school and Krueger Middle School and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1969. Since then, he's graduated from Texas Tech University and worked for Tetco, Valero, and Apple Computers. Unfortunately, he's also been diagnosed with dementia. The chronic disorder can impair reasoning or mess with memories. But for Frye, memories of his time at NEISD are some of his happiest and some of the memories that are most accessible despite his diagnosis.

    His daughter recently sent in a story about her father and how deeply rooted and important his NEISD memories are.

    "My dad never misses a chance to tell us stories of his time at Krueger and Roosevelt. He set the bar high for my brother's and mine's high school experiences. We used to ride bikes in the Krueger parking lot, and Dad would point out different places on campus where he and his buddies got into mischief. Despite his cognitive decline, my brother and I got him to the Roosevelt Class of '69s 50th reunion in 2019. He never missed a reunion! Many of his classmates made accommodations to ensure he was cared for during the festivities. I think what helped create such good memories for dad was the sense of community. This helped to form deeply rooted relationships."

    His passion for his education rubbed off on his daughter. She's now a guidance counselor at Poteet Junior High School. His love for NEISD also rubbed off on her; her stepchildren attend Wood Middle School and Madison High School.
