Five La Porte ISD educators were honored Feb. 8 at the 37th Annual Houston Area Alliance of Black School Educators Awards for being among the best in the greater Houston Area.

Superintendent Dr. Walter Jackson sponsored and accompanied the district’s honorees, who were: Yolanda Joseph, College Park Elementary kindergarten teacher; Anissa Jackson, La Porte High School math teacher; Belva Perry, La Porte Elementary third grade teacher; Kevin Poe, Lomax Jr. High band director; and Anthony Stephens, La Porte High School head basketball coach.

Said Dr. Jackson, “As guardians of our democracy, they merit our gratitude and respect for their tireless efforts in shaping young minds.”
