WHEREAS, much of the community’s knowledge and opinions about the Houston Independent School District (HISD) rely on responsible reporting by local media representatives who decide which news to share with the community, how much attention will be focused on various issues, and what the tone of the reporting will be; therefore
NOW BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Education of HISD nominates Laurie Johnson of KUHF Radio (et al) for the Texas Association of School Boards’ statewide Media Honor Roll, calling attention to the ongoing responsible and exemplary nature of their reporting on HISD. The Board expresses its appreciation for the balanced and accurate approach to sharing with the Houston community both the challenges facing our schools and the success achieved by our teachers and students.

The HISD School Board is meeting this afternoon. I thought I'd share one of their agenda items with you.
