Celebrating our Region 10 School Board of the Year!

We are proud of the collaborative service displayed by this year’s deserving winner.
2022 Region 10 School Board of the Year
Quinlan ISD Board of Trustees
“I believe the Quinlan ISD Board of Trustees is directly answering major challenges they face in Southern Hunt County. I am very impressed by the work done in their CTE programs, including endorsements in Cosmetology and Welding. Additionally, the percentage of graduates earning associate's degrees is a major accomplishment. Their board members are, for the most part, long-time residents of Quinlan…Long-time residents can have the "it was good enough for me" mentality. Not the case in Quinlan. These programs, and others like them, are a clear indication that the board members and administration actively work to pursue programs that are good for students.”
