State Representative Jones Honored

Shallowater I.S.D. recognized Representative Delwin Jones for his contributions to education. The school district thanked the representative with a plaque of appreciation.

Jones says it's his responsibility to teach children the importance of a good education. Jones says, "It's important to us and it's important to them because the education block is the building block of their foundation to get a future in the world of technology that we're in. It gives them an opportunity to move up in the world and be successful in whatever business they pursue."

Jones also commented on the upcoming special session over school finance. He says he's confident the legislature will revamp the funding system before the June 1st deadline.
