Ninth Grade Center to be renamed in honor of Daniel

May 17, 2011 by Randy Keck

Randy Keck/The Community News: School board members posed with retiring AISD Superintendent Don Daniel at his last school board meeting Monday. Shown are (from left) Johnny Campbell, Steve Bartley, Bobby J. Rigues, Joe Dearing, Daniel, Hoyt Harris, David Davis and Jay Stringer.

Members of the Aledo ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to name the Aledo High School Ninth Grade Center in honor of retiring Superintendent Don Daniel. In introducing the subject, School Board President Joe Dearing said there is no better way to honor an educator than to name a school after him.

"Mr. Daniel has served this district well," Dearing said. David Davis made the motion to re-name the ninth-grade center, and the trustees unanimously approved.

In receiving the honor, Daniel said there was no greater honor. Looking back at his youthful aspiration to play baseball, Daniel said it would be like being named MVP of the World Series.

A reception in Daniel's honor is being held today at 4:30 in the Ninth Grade Center Cafeteria.

During the meeting, trustees also hired a new Chief Financial Officer, promoted Middle School Principal Kathy Allen to Executive Director of Curriculum, and hired a new principal for Vandagriff Elementary School.

More specifics can be found in the May 20 issue of The Community News.
