Proud Senior, Brylee Holmes, one of many 2022 seniors, was the first student who introduced herself to me when I arrived at the high school for a tour on Friday AND made a point to find me and introduce herself to me again at the fundraiser on Saturday! She exudes a positive spirit and has served as homecoming queen. I'm sure she is one of many leaders in TISD, and I can't wait to meet you all. Dr. Elna Davis Superintendent
The M Club fundraiser in Tarkington this weekend was AMAZING! Funds raised will help EVERY senior with college/career plans after graduation. The love in the arena for the students was inspiring. The generosity of our community took my breath away. Tarkington ISD not only has great friends in our board members, but also has friends in life-long residents devoted to our success. I learned from a board member in Grand Prairie that the way you spell LOVE is T-I-M-E. There was so much love in the arena as you gave your time, talents, and resources for our students! In action, I saw Longhorns for Life! Dr. Elna Davis Superintendent
