On Tuesday, the Kaufman Independent School District board and staff recognized the contributions of long-time board members John Zaby and Britt Murrey.
Zaby has served on the board since 1999, and Murrey has served since 2005.
Together, they have a combined 36 years of service to Kaufman ISD.
They both indicated that it had been an honor and a privilege to serve. "I love this community that I have grown up in," Zaby said. "I take pride in all of our schools and I am black and gold with all my soul."
"It has been a blessing to work with such talented leaders," said Superintendent Lori Blaylock. "They will be missed."
