COLDSPRING — The Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Board of Trustees recognized students and staff at its regular monthly meeting on April 25.
Before the meeting, Coldspring-Oakhurst High School Culinary Arts students served trustees and staff in attendance a delicious meal of bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken breasts, roasted asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes with fresh croissants and key-lime parfaits for dessert.
The meeting began with Awards and Recognitions. Culinary Arts Instructor Chef Joel Casiday presented COHS senior Ethan Manshack to the board with a commendation for winning the SkillsUSA state championship in the Restaurant Services category.
Manshack will now advance to nationals this June in Atlanta.
“If he makes it to the world championship, it’s in Shanghai this year,” Casiday said with a laugh. “Y’all might want to start budgeting for that now.”
In other business, the board:
• approved a proposal for HVAC installation;
• approved revisions to board policy regarding facilities names; and
• approved a shared services agreement with Conroe Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf for the 2022-2023 school year.
The next meeting of the COCISD Board of Trustees will be May 23. All regular school board meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month at the Jones Educational Complex, unless otherwise posted.
