Wednesday, Oct. 10, has been designated as Texas Education Human Resources Day through a gubernatorial proclamation. The recognition from Gov. Rick Perry is an initiative of the Texas Association of School Personnel Administrators. “Human resources professionals are responsible for implementing effective practices for the hiring of quality staff to teach young Texans and keep schools running smoothly,” Perry said. In Granbury ISD, the Human Resources Department is led by director Tom Howard. Other staff members are benefits specialist Dianne Burns, secretary Jinnifer Johns, human resources specialist Tam McIntosh, substitute and leave coordinator Kathi Myers, and certification officer Karen Taylor.
