After the delicious meal, we gathered our heroes and made our way to the football field. Underneath the Friday night lights, we had the privilege of showing our heartfelt gratitude for the incredible work these brave individuals do for our community every single day.

Recently, Winnsboro Independent School District has been awarded a Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant in the amount of $206,432 by the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). The grant was used to purchase equipment to expand the career and technical education programs for our Winnsboro High School Students. The district used the grant to purchase welders, cutters, solderers and brazers for Winnsboro High School. The equipment arrived this summer and students will begin being trained this school-year. The equipment will allow students to earn certifications in welding and various machinery through Northeast Texas Community College. These certifications will encourage employability for the students after high school. WISD applied for the grant in the summer of 2022 with guidance from Dr. Pam Gambrel, WISD grant specialist. The extensive application process allowed for WISD to partner with community and local workforce commission members to support the district’s efforts to earn the grant. Several letters of support were written by local community members and business owners. Prior to applying for the grant, WISD had to choose a high demand occupation and determine an opportunity to bring training for the occupation to WISD students. It was determined that providing training for a career in welding and machinery would be beneficial for our students. WISD is excited about the opportunity that this grant will provide our students. The JET grant is funded by the Texas Legislature and approved by the governor each biennium. The TWC uses the JET grants to fund start-up costs of developing career and technical education programs for public state and community technical colleges, school districts and open charter schools in the state of Texas.
The Varsity cheerleaders encouraged school spirit on this game day Friday at the Winnsboro Elementary and Intermediate Schools! Go Big Red!!
