Coming Attractions

Coming Attractions - Oct. 28, 2022
Subject Expert: SAISD Police Chief Johnny Reyes, Jr. 

Following the tragedy in Uvalde, police officers are finding themselves having to re-establish trust with the communities they serve. Chief Reyes, with 30 years of law enforcement experience, is available to speak to the significance of community service in building public trust. 

The SAISD Police Department for decades has made community service a pillar. While community service happens year-round, fall activities have particular meaning. During October, officers have been wearing uniforms with pink Police Department insignia to officially observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In November, officers will participate in No Shave November to raise funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Center, which supports cancer research and treatment for children. Additionally, annual events like the police department's Trunk or Treat event at Sarah King Elementary School (see Monday 5:30 p.m. calendar item below) or Visit with Santa program during the holidays put the district police officers front and center with the citizens they serve. 

Student Voices: Twins Melody and Marissa Espinoza, Brackenridge High School cross country state qualifiers

Brackenridge High School seniors Melody and Marissa Espinoza, identical twins, are available to talk about the commitment and drive it takes to push yourself to personal records, while also cheering your twin and best friend to do even better. The duo will compete in the UIL State Cross Country Meet in Round Rock Nov. 4-5. The sisters qualified for the state competition on Oct. 25 at the Region IV-5A Meet in Corpus Christi with Melody finishing third and Marissa finishing in 10th place. The twins will be practicing Monday, Oct. 31 to Thursday, Nov. 3 beginning at 6:30 a.m. at Brackenridge High School. Interviews may also be arranged at other times.
