A Student’s Perspective
by William C. Yancy
Wednesday, May 03, 2017

Lois Jones would be a terrific addition to the school board, because she has worked in education for over 25 years for La Marque, Round Rock, Clear Creek and now Santa Fe ISD. The first thing that she brings to the table is that she’s all about the kids. Before any school district makes any decisions in what goes on, they need to make sure what is in the student’s best interest. This will draw more kids in, because it makes the students feel like they have a voice, which is very important in a child’s life. Ultimately what this does is bring more money in for the district. Because the more kid’s you have, the more money comes in. And the more kids you have and the more money you have, the more programs you have to offer students that they might be interested in. Lois Jones will work to do that for our schools. She is from a family of local entrepreneurs and she understands the business and structure of schools in this atmosphere of tests, tests and more tests.

I am a former student of Clear Creek ISD schools since the third grade and I transferred to La Marque High School my senior year. I found a brotherhood, a respected brand, and a spirit of excellence despite the odds. What are the odds? Our facilities are out dated and many times our campus is extremely cold among other things. However, I have witnessed a strong administrative team determined to turn our high school around and make our high school years memorable despite the conditions. I have witnessed improvement, albeit slow since August. The students, teachers and administrative team deserves a TCISD board willing to send their own relatives to our school and recommend it to others, if they can’t do that, well they shouldn’t be our voice.

Lois Jones will help us to move forward. She is a natural go getter with a passion for education, children and prayer. How do I know? Lois Jones is my maternal grandmother. Lois Jones will be the knowledgeable educator and peace maker we need to unify our schools to make Texas City & La Marque schools into a powerhouse district! I am a former Clear Creek Wildcat that became a proud La Marque Cougar and I don’t regret it. As a graduating senior, my prayer is that the students coming behind me will be able to know the pride of a true blue and gold Cougar which is academic excellence and consistent achievement. Most students are not eligible to vote so we hope you make the best choice for us. A vote for Lois Jones is a vote for students and a certain path of excellence.
