Interim Superintendent Highlights Channelview ISD Accomplishments in Annual State of School Chamber Luncheon
October 8, 2021-- Channelview Independent School District was one of three school districts that was invited to attend the annual North Channel Chamber of Commerce State of the School Luncheon held on Friday, October 1.
The event allows for area superintendents (Galena Park, Sheldon and Channelview) to speak on behalf of their district and share with community leaders, stakeholders and local business owners the happenings of their schools. The event was canceled last year due to COVID-19.
Interim Superintendent Dr. Don Beck had a surprise for the audience when a robot engineered by Channelview High School robotics department came to the stage to supply him with a water bottle after he developed a mild cough on stage.
“It was a pleasure and honor to speak at this year’s State of the School Luncheon,” said Channelview ISD Interim Superintendent Dr. Don Beck. “I know our robotics students were excited to show off their robot and it was an eye-catching way to show others what our students are learning in the classroom. Technology has come a long way, and I am excited our students have the opportunity for real hands-on learning. I was grateful they were able to participate and show others the innovative ways they learn.”
Each school district superintendent elaborated on the accomplishments of their students, new initiatives, and bond updates. In addition, a video was shown to allow for those in attendance to learn more about each district.
Channelview ISD Board members were also invited and several attended including; Shumona Collins, Hector Martinez, Raquel Dobbins and Patrick Lacy.
