October is breast cancer awareness month, and for one Comal ISD campus, the disease has hit home. A beloved teacher was diagnosed this summer with the disease, and her outlook has become an inspiration to everyone she meets.
Annually, high school students from across the United States participate in a leadership program designed to teach them about citizenship and government. Students from Comal ISD learned the importance of getting involved at Boys State and Girls State.
At its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, the Comal ISD Board of Trustees approved a 7-cent decrease in the district’s tax rate, lowering it from 1.39 to $1.32. The new rate goes into effect immediately.
All month, campuses across the district have hosted campaigns to raise not only money, but also awareness of childhood cancer. One of the main reasons the district is so invested in raising awareness is because of students like the five featured here who continue to fight and show amazing courage and strength every day.
