TCISD names middle school for longtime educator

Karen Rose gives a thumbs up as she and Jacqueline Anders celebrate the Texas City Independent School District Board of Trustees’ decision to rename La Marque Middle School to Sarah Giles Middle School on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021.

A lot goes into naming a new school.The process can become political in any community, and those making the decision always run the risk of displeasing as many as they please.

We congratulate the Texas City Independent School District for its work in choosing a name for the new La Marque Middle School, which will be named after Sarah Giles, a former teacher in the La Marque Independent School District.

Maybe its just time to go to numbering schools like TCSD 14 and avoid all the controversary people want to make of it.

I’m not sensing a lot of controversy here. There were lots of good suggestions, which appear to have been seriously considered by the Board. They arrived at a decision which most people seem to applaud. I think it was all done correctly.
