GPISD Board of Trustees Recognize Outstanding Volunteers

Houston, Texas: At the Galena Park ISD January meeting of the Board of Trustees, Kenneth Wimbley and Jay Netherly were recognized for their outstanding service at North Shore Senior High School (NSSHS). These two gentlemen can be seen regularly at the school, greeting and setting a fine example for students. “Come rain or shine, Mr. Wimbley can be counted on to provide a warm greeting to all students as they come in the front entrance [of the school]. He volunteers many hours to the Scarlets with fundraising activities and has built several portable stages for our theatre arts department. He not only encourages our students, but faculty and staff are inspired by his kind words as well,” Dr. Coleman, NSSHS Principal said. When asked about Jay Netherly, Dr. Coleman replied, “If it's not a school holiday, Mr. Netherly will be found at his post – the North Wing Entrance. If [we] lost the Mustang as a mascot, we would consider Mr. Netherly for the job! He is faithful and dependable. He assists from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each and every day. Mr. Netherly also assisted with summer school this past summer, and he loves to attend the senior field trip, project graduation, prom and many other student activities.”
