SBOE unveils student-designed PSF logo
Date Posted: 2/01/2019 | Author: Mark Wiggins
The State Board of Education (SBOE) quietly concluded its first meeting of 2019 on a light note. Chair Donna Bahorich (R-Houston) and Member Marty Rowley (R-Amarillo) unveiled the new logo for the Permanent School Fund (PSF).
Dripping Springs High School student Melissa Richardson designed the winning logo. Member Tom Maynard (R-Florence) led the effort to brand the PSF, and the design was chosen as a result of a statewide competition open to students.
Friday concluded the first full meeting for the board's three newly-elected members, Matt Robinson (R-Friendswood), Aicha Davis (D-Dallas), and Pam Little (R-Fairview).
The highlight of the week's meeting was a learning roundtable hosted at the Austin Convention Center, which focused on the board's Long-Range Plan for Public Education, which can be viewed here. The board's next scheduled meeting is April 2-5.
