Red Ribbon Week Fun in GPISD!

On October 21, East Harris County Empowerment Council, partnered with Delivering Good and Galena Park ISD to provide relief to families affected by Hurricane Harvey. Delivering Good provided clothes, shoes, household supplies, car seats, playpens and much more to community members to assist with the rebuilding process post-Hurricane Harvey. Nearly 100 families, who signed up in advance, were served at North Shore Middle School.


Thank you to Galena Park ISD's Superintendent's Student Advisory Board members, Michael Garza and Liliana Nieto, the North Shore Senior High School Interact Club, North Shore Middle School administrators, East Harris County Empowerment Council, Delivering Good, and the many GPISD central office administrators who spent their weekend giving back -- We are GPISD STRONG!


If you were directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey and are in need of clothing and household items you may complete a needs assessment at http://myneeds.ehcec.org. They will contact you to let you know if you qualify, and the date and time of the next distribution.

Alumni Spotlight- September 2017

Our September spotlight is Jahir C. Avila, a 1997 Galena Park High School graduate. He also attended Galena Park Elementary and Galena Park Middle School. Avila attributes his academic success to Mrs. Lopez, Mrs. Craven, Mr. Boardstreet, Mr. Matthews and Mr. Tremel. They taught him the importance of communicating and helping others. He would also like to thank all of his former teachers for their hard work and dedication.


During his senior year, Avila enlisted to join the United States Army after graduation. While in the Army, he worked in the Infantry. Throughout his 20 year service in the Army, he has been all over the world including the Middle East and Europe. Avila went overseas during war four separate occasions to serve our country.


Mr. Avila is getting ready to begin a new chapter in his life in his hometown of Galena Park. He will be retiring from the Army at the end of the month with 20 years of service. After retirement, he would like to continue helping others by working for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assisting after natural disasters.

Alumni Spotlight- October 2017

Our October spotlight is Mark Orphey, a 2007 North Shore Senior High School graduate. He also attended North Shore Middle School. While in high school, Orphey was an active member of Gents and participated in track and football. He was named the 2007 District MVP for track and All-District in football.


After high school, Orphey attended Texas Southern University, where he played football and ran track. In 2011, Orphey graduated with a degree in business management. After completing his bachelors, Orphey went to the University of South Carolina to receive his master’s in health information technology.


Orphey attributes his success to the overwhelming support he received from the administrators and educators. Orphey still has a few educators and employees who play a major role in his life including Jon Kay, Brian Allen, Garrett Cross and his mother, Tresa Orphey. He described these four individuals as exemplary and visionary mentors, who have dedicated their life to the service of humanity.


Orphey currently lives in Montana where he is the defensive backs coach at Montana State University. While coaching, he also uses his platform to educate his players on the importance of building character. He wants the players to know it’s not just about being an athlete or winning on the field, but winning in life.


In the future, when he is done coaching college football, Orphey would like to be the head coach at North Shore Senior High.
