The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored a group of service-oriented students who took time out of their summer break to provide much-needed assistance at Pebble Hills Elementary School.
Pebble Hills Principal Stacy Vasquez put out a call this summer to high schools, asking for volunteers to help paint classrooms at her campus.
The call was heeded by 19 members of Riverside High School’s National Honor Society (NHS), who showed up in force to help school officials paint more than 60 classrooms in only three days.
Ms. Vasquez said,”Had it not been for the dedicated volunteer work provided by these exceptional Riverside Rangers, her classrooms would not have been ready for the new furniture provided for students this year. These students are a shining example of the hard work, dedication, and service excellence that we are emphasizing throughout our district, and we applaud them on a job well done!”
Receiving the President’s Award at the board meeting was NHS President Victoria Rodriguez, who accepted the award on behalf of the Riverside High School National Honor Society.
The President’s Award is given by the President of the Board of Trustees to a YISD student who has demonstrated exceptional and/or innovative, out-of-the-ordinary service to others, particularly those within the YISD community.
