The school board award highlights the importance of strong leadership at the board level. The district already received a $5,000 grant for being a finalist, and it was presented with $25,000 in additional prize money at the awards banquet in Austin.

The district was selected as a large school finalist for the Excellence in Education District Award and received a $5,000 prize.
