January is the month to thank the Glen Rose Independent School District’s board members. Gov. Rick Perry has proclaimed it “School Board Recognition Month.”

GRISD board members are Marilyn Phillips, chairman; Brady Brown, Wade Busch, Tom Lounsberry, Kelley Snodgrass, Andy Snow and Kevin Taylor.

“Balancing the need for local control with directives coming down from larger governmental bodies is a difficult and oftentimes unappreciated task, but for over two centuries, American school boards have risen to such challenges,” Gov. Perry wrote in the proclamation.
