Tyler ISD celebrates National Volunteer Week

TYLER, April 23, 2013-- Tyler ISD is celebrating its 2,147 volunteers during National Volunteer Week. Tyler ISD is so thankful for the parents and community members who give their time to serve as a volunteer in our schools.

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service. Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week focuses national attention on the impact and power of volunteerism and service as an integral aspect of our civic leadership.

A volunteer’s commitment to supporting education provides our young people with a role model of responsible citizenship. James Hobbs is one of those role models. He volunteers four days a week at Jones Elementary MST Academy.

“For the past 10 years I was a teacher at Tyler Junior College. When I retired from TJC I decided I wanted to go somewhere I can make a difference and help students catch up in math at the fourth and fifth grade levels,” Mr. Hobbs said. “Volunteering has been a great experience!”

Tyler ISD volunteers are a much appreciated and highly respected group of people who make up a very important part of our educational team. Tyler ISD and its professional educators have witnessed the rewards of volunteer partnerships between our community and its schools.

Whether they serve as a parent, grandparent, or community member, participation in all volunteer endeavors is essential in developing our greatest asset – our youth. Our outstanding volunteers share life experiences and resources that enable our staff members to accomplish much more than ever before.

Thank you to our Tyler ISD Volunteers who give their time to support our students, teachers and staff!
