The New Braunfels Independent School District recognized BCFS Education Services with the “Stand Up for Texas Public Schools” Award, presented by New Braunfels ISD Superintendent of Schools, Randy Moczygemba. The ceremony and award presentation took place during a board meeting on June 24.

Rebecca Wieland and Jo Ann Rodriguez, both of whom serve as Family Coaches in the Texas counties of Comal and Guadalupe, accepted the award on behalf of Sonia Zigmond, Program Director at BCFS Education Services.

“I was so honored when I received the letter stating we would be recognized for our partnership with the district,” said Sonia. “This is a partnership built on trust, transparency, and a shared dedication to early childhood and to the children and families in this wonderful community.”

In an email, Randy described BCFS Education Services as “an example of what establishing strong relationships with the business community and supporting our schools can do to help build a stronger and better New Braunfels.” 

BCFS Education Services and the New Braunfels ISD have been working together for six years and counting. Because of their work in the area to improve early education, BCFS Education Services is now featured in the Texas Association of School Boards’ list of recognized businesses for the 2018-2019 school year.

“With a 6A district, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that we don’t see,” Superintendent Moczygemba said to a crowd of around 50 people at the board meeting on Monday evening. “This award is a way to celebrate these community partners that do such great work.”
