Important School Board Meeting

This Thursday, November 14th please join members of the Amarillo Branch NAACP at the Amarillo Independent School District board meeting.

One particularly important agenda item will be “B. 8. Consider accepting the resignation of Trustee Cristy Wilkinson.” As with any vacancy on the school board, it’s important that our voice is heard and our presence is noted as the board decides how to fill the potential vacancy.
