The Texas Association of Secondary School Principals recently held its annual summer conference in Austin with administrators from across the entire state in attendance.  The event began with the Texas Heroes Awards Dinner held at the Hilton in downtown Austin. Among those being honored at this ceremony was Mr. Keith Jones, Assistant Principal at Bridge City High School. Mr. Jones was named the Assistant Principal of the Year for Region 5.

Richard Briggs, principal of Bridge City High School stated, “The position of Assistant Principal is one of the most thankless positions in public education and that makes this award that much more special. We congratulate Keith on this honor. Glenn Procella, also an Assistant Principal at BCHS, is a past recipient of this award as well. We are very fortunate to have both of these gentlemen in administrative roles and through their efforts, the efforts of our staff, and especially through the efforts of our students, we are proud of the positive learning environment that is created and maintained on our campus.”

Superintendent Mike King adds, “BCISD congratulates Mr Keith Jones on receiving this honor. His receiving this award validates the hard work, professionalism and integrity that he exhibits daily in his work with our students and teachers.
