Liberty Hill ISD’s Business and Financial Services Department Earns Prestigious Award of Merit
LIBERTY HILL, TX - Liberty Hill ISD is proud to be recognized by The Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with a 2023 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services. This is the third consecutive year LHISD’s Business and Financial Services department has been honored with the state-wide award.
Each year, the TASBO Purchasing & Supply Management Research Committee evaluates the award criteria to ensure it represents the latest best practices. They then review new and recertification applications. For 2023, only 71 recipients met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award. “As Texas school districts face ever-increasing pressure to use funds efficiently, we’re proud of the work our honorees do to streamline operations, comply with regulations, and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” said Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO Executive Director. “These organizations have not only demonstrated their professional purchasing operations by documenting their districts’ policies and procedures but have also shared these best practices with colleagues throughout Texas.”
Chief Financial Officer Rosanna Guerrero and members of the district’s Business and Financial Services team were honored at an awards reception sponsored by BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative in San Antonio, Texas, on February 15 during the 2023 TASBO annual conference.
"We are extremely honored to receive this award,” Liberty Hill ISD Superintendent Snell said. “It's a true testament to our CFO, Rosanna Guerrero, and her financial staff, and it demonstrates once again how well LHISD is as stewards of the community’s tax dollars.”
