Humble City Council raises hands for Texas

Posted by Texas Education on July 15, 2008

Yeah for Humble City Council. This is, I guess, would be listed under my “good stuff.” This is what I like to see, especially out of the community. In our own Tribuine, from Andres Quintero:

Public education continues to be one of the most important factors in preparing children for brighter tomorrows. At the Humble City Council meeting July 10, council members successfully passed a resolution to support Raise Your Hand Texas.

In recent years, Texans voiced their opinions and agreed they wanted schools to be stronger and in the best shape they can be.

Raise Your Hand Texas is nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting public schools. The organization follows three points of action. First, they celebrate the work Texas teachers and students have done. Second, they defend schools from unfair or inaccurate criticism. Finally, they strengthen schools by searching for any extra state resources and making everyday suggestions for improving school systems.

Along with Raise Your Hand Texas, the City of Humble also sponsors other programs, such as D.A.R.E., which is funded by Randall Reed’s Planet Ford.

Other programs include sending public relation officers from the City to speak to children in schools, and painting the Humble Wildcat on streets throughout Humble.

Here for the rest of the story.

Humble City Council meetings are open to the public. They are held at Humble City Hall, 114 W. Higgins, at 6:30 p.m. every second and fourth Thursday of the month.

Please do your part, join Raise Your Hand Texas!
