Student-Hero

Student-HeroAt Galena Park ISD’s (GPISD) June 10, 2024, Board of Trustees meeting, State Board of Education (SBOE) Member Staci Childs joined the GPISD Trustees in congratulating Johnny Dixon III for receiving the 2024 Student Heroes Award for SBOE District 4. The Student Heroes program recognizes Texas public school students who do an outstanding volunteer service that benefits their fellow students, schools, or communities. To be nominated for this award, the volunteer service project performed by the student cannot be associated with any curriculum requirement, school service project, or community program. Because the GPISD community has benefited from several of his projects that have strengthened us, Johnny is one of only fifteen students to be recognized this year. Johnny is an outstanding representative for SBOE’s District 4 and especially GPISD!
