“We are grateful for the generosity of our businesses and local partners and their commitment to help make a real difference for our kids and our community,” said Steve Murray, Superintendent of Bastrop ISD. “This year we recognize our “We Believe in BISD” partners as well as the companies that make our Back to School Bash and Stuff the Bus events possible. Their generous financial support, as well as their time and talent, allow us to create more meaningful impact for our teachers, students, and families.”
The TASB recognition program, which began in 2014, is intended to recognize businesses, organizations, and individuals whose partnership with the district is both inspiring and encouraging to all those who work on behalf of public school children.
