Trustees step forward on $25 million bond


When asked by President Joe Ruelas, Barron explained that they have to present their findings in front of their class and said it has pushed her because, “I used to hide behind my teachers.”

Principal Kelly Wilkerson said this is a new elective for seventh graders. She added that it “adds diversity to the electives and it's the most popular class.”



In other business last week, MWISD trustees recognized the local Alpha Delta Kappa teacher sorority and Mineral Wells Classroom Teachers Association as the district’s October Partners in Education. Each year ADK provides scholarships for seniors, as well as raising funds for other entities. The local TCTA also provides student and teacher scholarships and sends representatives to summer leadership workshops and to the state convention.
