Today is an opportunity to reflect on what happened 18 years ago… disbelief on hearing the news reports, realization as we came to accept that the unthinkable was happening… to those living during these days, it may have been how our parents and grandparents felt on hearing the news of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

We live in a new world, at once filled with new hope and fear that we will once again repeat our missteps.

It’s September, and that means football season in Texas is back in full swing. Like so many of you, I relish spending my Friday nights this time of year under the bright lights of a football stadium, munching on a box of popcorn and supporting our East Texas schools.

Additionally, we’ve got students across our region participating in fall extracurricular activities such as volleyball and cross country, with basketball and soccer just around the corner. Whatever your fancy, I hope that you get to spend some time over the next few months supporting our students and showing your community pride. more
