School Board Recognition Month

January is School Board Recognition Month and the Brenham Independent School District is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools.

School board members serve countless hours working to make public education the best it can be for every child. In a climate of change and challenge, our school board develops policies and makes tough decisions on complex educational and social issues that affect the entire community and the lives of individual students. They bear responsibility and oversight in Brenham ISD for an annual budget of $40 million; almost 5000 students, in grades PK to 12; more than 700 employees; and 8 campuses.

“Preparing today’s students to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow is a tremendous task. As elected officials, school board members are the voice of our community, serving first and foremost in the best interest of our school children,” said Superintendent Dr. Walter Jackson.

We proudly salute these education advocates as they provide vision and leadership for student achievement, academic programs, district funding, and school facilities. Their service ensures that decisions about local public schools are made by those most familiar with the needs of our community’s children and families. These dedicated individuals deserve recognition and thanks for their unfailing commitment to the continuing success of our students now and in the future.

The men and women serving Brenham ISD are:

  • Natalie Lange, President
  • Melvin Ehlert, Vice President
  • Susan Jenkins, Secretary
  • Dr. Michael Altman, Trustee
  • Sgt. Kelvin Raven, Trustee
  • Mark Schneider, Trustee
