Several members of FFA representing Humble, Atascocita and Kingwood talked about all the accomplishments of the chapters within the past year. Of the many accolades, two members advanced to represented Humble ISD at the state level.

The next presentation came from distinguished student, student president and Honor Society member Daniel Winter.
“On behalf of the students of Quest Early College High School, we would like to thank the Humble ISD Board for their continued support of our students and campus. Due to your support, our school was able to participate in many service projects and grow as individuals in preparation for our future. One of our proudest moments came when we worked together as an entire school to create our float for the Christmas parade. Many thanks for several amazing years,” he said.
As the meeting ended, many teachers were recognized for their service to the students of the district and approvals were granted for additional staff in terms of teachers and paraprofessionals.
Robert Sitton, board vice president, took a moment to reflect on the service of all board members and area leaders within the past year.

He will truly be remembered and we ask for prayers for his family during this holiday season,” concluded Sitton.
