Annette Debinski - Heartbeat Award Recipient

It was an exciting day at WBE yesterday! Our own Mrs. Annette Debinski was presented with the MISD Heartbeat Award during our house party. The Heartbeat Award was established in 2008 to honor those in MISD who give selflessly and push others to do the same. Mrs. Debinski definitely deserves this award and we were so honored to be part of the presentation!

Runoff Election

Since no candidate for the Mansfield ISD School Board Trustee Place 6 seat received more than 50 percent of the votes in the May election, the top two finishers, Darrell Sneed and Jessica Camacho, will be the candidates vying for the position in a runoff election.

Voters will get a chance to cast their ballot May 30 through June 6 for early voting. Election Day is Saturday, June 10.
