While to debate the obvious path and end results of the La Marque ISD is counterproductive, I take exception to two statements made by Edna Courville (“Paul supporters are not confused,” The Daily News, March 28) regarding Mable Pratt and David Rac. 

1. “… Rac was hired on the board of managers in December 2015 ...”

2. “… Pratt was also hired on as a member of the board of managers …” 

The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of the word “hire:” payment for labor or personal services: wages. 

Let’s be crystal clear that the members of the La Marque ISD board of managers were appointed to serve. We were not hired. 

I considered myself honored and blessed to have been asked to serve with these two fine and respected individuals.
