KYYK 98.3 named to Texas Association of School Boards Media Honor Roll, honored by PISD

PALESTINE, June 12, 2014— KYYK Radio Station has been named to the 2014 Media Honor Roll, a program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), by Palestine Independent School District. The Media Honor Roll recognizes media representatives statewide for fair and balanced reporting of news about public schools. Media representatives from more than 380 Texas newspapers, radio and television stations, and online publications were honored by their local school districts. Also receiving the honor was the Palestine Herald Press. The two organizations will be honored at the Palestine ISD regular School Board meeting on June 16.

Criteria for the district selection included the media representative’s efforts to get to know the superintendent, board president, and the district’s mission and goals; report school news in a fair, accurate, and balanced manner; give a high profile to positive news about schools; visit the schools; and maintain a policy of no surprises by sharing information with school officials.

“Palestine ISD appreciates these reporters for their balanced and accurate approach to sharing both the challenges facing our schools and the successes achieved by local teachers, students, and school boards. Their work aids local communities in focusing on the goal of providing the best public schools we can for every child,” said Faye Beaulieu, TASB president.
