Each January, we pause to express our appreciation for a very special group of volunteers: the Midlothian ISD School Board of Trustees. The 2014-2015 Board members are Todd Hemphill (president), Keith Hitt (vice-president), Matt Sanders (secretary), Duke Burge, Jim Mentzel, Tom Moore and Carl Smith (trustees).
Usually, we don't think of school board members as school volunteers, but they do in fact volunteer to serve. School board members give their time, energy, and counsel to the school district without pay. They take on the job of governing the district - making the best decisions they can for our children - with the full understanding that they will receive only the satisfaction of their contribution.
