Jason Pringle announces run for school board
My name is Jason Pringle and I would like to take this time to let you know a little more about myself. I was born and raised in Limestone County and my roots run deep. Not only did I grow up in this area, I have, in my adult years, helped the area youth grow and build. In the past, I was a member of the board for Groesbeck Little Dribblers. For the past 12 years I have been a fixture on the baseball and softball fields for our youth. Serving on each board when they were separate entities and being a part of unifying the separate baseball and softball boards into the Groesbeck Youth Baseball Softball Association. I have served as the President and Vice President of these boards. For 13 years I feel I have been a positive influence on the children that I have coached on either the baseball or softball fields, in peewee football and even the basketball court.
I have chosen to stay here in Groesbeck and raise my family of 4 because I feel the Limestone area and Groesbeck School district has the ability to offer my children the skills they will need to succeed in this world wherever they chose to be. I am a graduate of Groesbeck High School class of 1996 as is my wife, Crala. Madi, our oldest, graduated from Groesbeck High School last year. While attending Groesbeck schools she took advantage of the many programs, both academic and athletic, that Groesbeck had to offer. She is currently attending the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. Memphis, who is currently a sophomore, has also been able to participate in both the academic and athletic opportunities our district offers. Our 6th grader, Landrie, is half way through her school career and is beginning to see her potential as a Groesbeck ISD student. Koda, our 2nd grader, has just begun to touch on the advantages he has as a student within Groesbeck ISD. With all 4 of my children I am able to see the different aspects of our district. I have seen strengths in both our academic and athletic programs, but I have also seen things that are ready for change and growth.
Just like my 4 children, each student within our district is different. It is our responsibility to ensure that each student is receiving the instructional support that they need, but also to be challenged academically. It is imperative that our athletic programs train not just athletes but also young men and women who are ready to be teammates and partners outside of their sport. Our vocational and Ag programs are preparing students for futures in rapidly advancing fields. Our fine arts programs are giving our students skills they will use for many years to come. We must move each and every program within our district, starting from the H.O. Whitehurst Elementary to the High School, in an upward and positive direction. I look forward to being a part of this progress as a member of the Groesbeck School Board.
