MCALLEN — Region One named the McAllen I.S.D. school board the best in the region and a ceremony was held to celebrate the prestigious honor. The Texas Association of School Administrators says only school boards that have demonstrated outstanding dedication and ethical service achieve this high recognition. McAllen I.S.D. Board President Hilda DeShazo stated, "That means a lot, it means a lot to me as Board President, it also means a lot to me as a former educator. I just think this board works well together, like Mr. Saldivar and I both said, we do everything that we can for what's in the best interest of the kids and that is what we have to keep in mind."
