One of the questions people might have after watching the Jay High School/referee video, might be "What is the culture like inside Northside ISD." We are featuring this video to show you exactly what culture is like. This video was captured last year (2014) and has been an ongoing effort of elevating values across all campuses and the community as a whole. This is their culture. This is their belief. This is what they stand for.
Sometimes bad things happen to great people.
Today, it is easy to watch videos and jump on bandwagons. It doesn't take much effort to look at a single "incident" and make a blanket opinion on everyone involved.
It is harder to take the time to find out the facts and/or the pattern of behavior of the people involved. It is even harder to get firsthand experience with those people in leadership positions. So, in response to the recent events that have unfolded across social media, we wanted to offer another opinion. This opinion is ours, and we respect your right to agree or disagree.
We have had the privilege of working firsthand with the leaders at Northside ISD for the last three years. If we lived in San Antonio, our family would move into the Northside School District to ensure that our own children had a chance to come under the leadership authority of Superintendent Dr. Brian Woods, Executive Director of Athletics Stan Laing and their entire staff. Why? Because they stand for Commitment, Compassion, Courage, Excellence, Humility, Integrity, Leadership, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Control and Teamwork.
We applaud the effort that has been put forth for years by the leadership, coaches parents and students at Northside ISD. While we would never want anything like what has happened recently to effect our society anywhere, we are thankful that it happened where it did. Why, because we know the Northside family will handle this like they do everything else - with class, dignity and respect. They will do the right thing.
It is not about how you start, but how you finish. It isn't about being perfect in life, but what you do when things don't go well.
As a country we need more communities like Northside ISD. Many have thrown daggers and taken this opportunity to kick them while they are down. However, we should applaud them and lift them up in this time. We come along side of Northside ISD and salute you! You are GAMECHANGERS!
