The Stephenville board of trustees recognized student Shannel Landeros for showing the district's Initiative Core Value and PEIMS administrator Darby West Hernandez for showing the Excellence Core Value.

Since January is School Board Appreciation Month, Superintendent Matt Underwood said some words about the board of trustees.

"What you do in the service to our community is often a thankless job and we appreciate the time and effort you put in," he said. "People don’t understand that for free, you do some hard work. People in the community need to know we appreciate what you do."
