SCUC ISD celebrates School Board Recognition Month

The Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District joins 1,025 school districts throughout Texas to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Gibson announced January 6, 2020.

“Our school board members are volunteers who shoulder critical responsibilities and often make difficult choices for our district, all without pay. Their goal is always focused on the future success of the children in our district,” said Dr. Gibson. “Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

Working with the Superintendent as a Team of Eight, Trustees serve as a link between the community and classroom. School board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. SCUC ISD Trustees are responsible for an annual budget of $170 million, 15,925 students, 1,993 employees, and 17 campuses.

Board members serving SCUC ISD are:

Mrs. Amy Driesbach, President

Mr. Jerry Perkins, Vice-President

Mr. Ed Finley, Secretary

Mrs. Letticia Sever, Assistant Secretary

Mr. Gary Inmon, Trustee

Mr. David Pevoto, Trustee

Mr. Robert Westbrook, Trustee

“It’s more important than ever before that communities support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” Dr. Gibson said.

Mr. David Pevoto, Trustee

"I serve on the Board of Trustees because I want to serve the school district that has been so good to my family and me. 
As a former administrator in SCUC, I’ve been fortunate to be associated with many outstanding educators, students, and parents. I try to use my background and experience to help make this the finest school district in the State. 
 
I take my role and responsibility as a member of the Board of Trustees seriously and I appreciate the honor and privilege that has been bestowed on me by being elected to serve." 
 

Mr. Robert Westbrook, Trustee

“My service with SCUC ISD is borne from a social responsibility to the community in which I live.

Of course there are some personal reasons like wanting to share my talents with others, a desire to represent different groups, developing relationships, and wanting a better education for all students but especially my children. However, the balance of my motivation comes from Luke 12:48. We are held responsible for what we have and our talents should be used for the betterment of those around us.”
