Local Lockhart Media Recognized as Members of TASB Media Honor Roll

Media representatives from more than 420 Texas newspapers, radio and television stations, and online publications were named to the 2015-16 Media Honor Roll by their local school districts. Sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), the Media Honor Roll program recognizes reporters statewide for fair, accurate, and balanced reporting of news about public schools.

Criteria for the district selection included the media representative’s efforts to get to know the superintendent, board president, and the district’s mission and goals; report school news in a fair, accurate, and balanced manner; give a high profile to positive news about schools; visit the schools; and maintain a policy of no surprises by sharing information with school officials.

Lockhart ISD proudly nominated local media representatives to receive this distinguished honor. It is with great lion pride that the District announces the following individuals and organizations for their support in informing our community and promoting our public schools.

The Lockhart Post-Register and Editor Kathi Bliss have, for many years, been committed to telling the story of Lockhart ISD and celebrating its students and staff. Ms. Bliss can be seen at just about every single district event clicking away on her camera, always advocating for LISD students and programs. She is a proud graduate of Lockhart High School and we are fortunate that she has chosen to give back to the community in this way.
