HISD welcomed three new members into its 2012 Partnership Hall of Fame on Oct. 5.
The theme for this year’s appreciation breakfast was “Partnership Champions,” and KBR, the Port of Houston Authority, and Prepared 4 Life were all recognized for their efforts to “champion” public education by providing extra resources and opportunities for HISD students.
“It’s not just about money,” said Superintendent of Schools Terry B. Grier. “We depend on our community partners to help us better serve our students and provide them with opportunities that will prepare them for the workforce. And every year, people step up to help. We can’t thank them enough for their commitment. Not only do our students benefit—everyone benefits.”
