GPISD mourns former educator
......The Galena Park Independent School District is mourning
the loss of Robert W. Zotz, a former educator who worked
the GPISD for 32 years. Zotz was hired in 1956 as a teacher
and worked as a coach, assistant principal and assistant
superintendent for administration. During his tenure, Zotz
worked closely with students and patrons of the district
as well as teachers and administrators. He also worked
under two former superintendents, W.C. Cunningham and Dr.
......Dr. Shirley Neeley, superintendent of schools, respected Zotz and said he was
devoted to education.
I grew up under the tutelage of Bob Zotz and learned a great deal from his
expertise. I have fond memories of him. He was a friend, mentor and great educator.
He will be sorely missed.”
