SISD Office of Public Information




Seminole ISD is proud to congratulate Dr. Sylvia Suarez, Assistant Superintendent of Seminole Independent School District, on being selected the Region 17 TEPSAN of the Year. Each year, 20 school leaders are recognized by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) for outstanding service to the association and Texas students. Honorees were recognized at the TEPSA Awards Reception on June 12th in Austin. “I am completely honored to be announced as TEPSAN of the Year,” stated Suarez. “TEPSA is an amazing organization that focuses on enhancing leadership skills of school administrators. TEPSA has allowed me to make connections throughout the state and has afforded me the opportunity to meet with state officials to bring attention to the needs of Seminole ISD and our region. I am so proud to be a part of TEPSA and even prouder to be able to represent Seminole ISD. I am extremely humbled by the recognition of my peers for doing work that I absolutely love!”

Dr. Suarez became a member of TEPSA eight years ago. For the 2017 - 2018  school year, Suarez served as Region 17 President-Elect. Dr. Suarez has previously earned recognition as Teacher of the Year, and was a finalist for Assistant Principal of the Year. Seminole ISD has been fortunate to have two stellar leaders representing our schools on the TEPSA Board of Directors the 2018 - 2019 school year; Dr. Sylvia Suarez, Region 17 President, and Sherrie Warren, F.J. Young Principal, President-Elect.

“TEPSA’s Board of Directors works to advance the association’s mission and build leadership capacity so all Texas PreK-8 students and teachers can be successful,” Executive Director Harley Eckhart said. TEPSA focuses on educational leaders learning with and from one another and has served Texas PreK-8 school leaders since 1917. The organization has more than 5,900 members who direct the activities of 3 million PreK-8 school children.

SISD names Rebecca Lashaway Principal of Seminole Primary

Dear Seminole Tribe Families,

We are pleased to announce Rebecca Lashaway as Principal at Seminole Primary. This transition comes after Kathy Moore made the decision to pursue another opportunity within SISD. Mrs. Lashaway has served as the assistant principal at Seminole Primary for the past three years. She has also served in a variety of teaching positions ranging from 2nd through 8th grade classrooms during her tenure at Lubbock, Tulia, Brownfield, and Seminole Independent School Districts.

Dr. Sylvia Suarez, Assistant Superintendent stated, “We have been incredibly focused this year on our vision as a district, and we know that vision does not come to life without dynamic leaders in every school. Mrs. Moore was a dynamic leader, and we would like to extend our gratitude to her for her leadership on the campus over the last several years. We greatly appreciate the impact she made while serving at Seminole Primary. With her departure, our principal selection committee set out to find another dynamic leader for the campus. We are extremely excited to promote Mrs. Rebecca Lashaway to the principal position. We have witnessed her work ethic, heart for children, and dedication to staff members while serving the campus as Assistant Principal. Mrs. Lashaway will do an excellent job as Primary Principal, and we have full confidence in her ability to lead the campus.”

I am humbled and excited to be given this opportunity to lead the Primary team,” stated Rebecca Lashaway. “I hope to continue with the hard work this campus has done to help all of our kids reach their potential. SISD has the best teachers and students in West Texas and I am lucky to be a part of that team!”

We look forward to the upcoming school year and the great things that will continue to come for Seminole Primary.

Seminole EMS holds first annual summer camp

Seminole EMS holds first annual summer camp

Seminole EMS will be holding our first annual Summer Camp this year. Our
camp this year will be open to students ages 8-14.

Camp will be held the week of July 8th through July 12th. At the conclusion of
our camp on the 12th, there will be an awards ceremony. All parents and family
members are invited to attend. Both the camp and awards ceremony will be
held at the EMS station, next to the Hospital.

We will have several members of our staff that will be conducting this camp.
Children will learn about what it is like to be an EMT or Paramedic as a career.
They will also learn many life saving skills. Our curriculum will include, but not
limited to CPR, First Aid, and Stop The Bleed. We hope that they will never have
to use these skills in everyday life, but if they do they will be prepared. We will
also have various activities planned through out the camp .

We are currently taking applications. These may be picked up at the EMS station
located at 205 NW 8th. The cost for this years camp will be $25 per child. This
cost will cover a camp t-shirt, and snacks for the week.

If you have any questions, or would like more information please contact us by
phone, or stop by the EMS station.

 Thank you,

Seminole EMS
