Black Diamond Affair: A Night at the Ranch

Argyle ISD supporters gathered at the Circle R Ranch on April 16 to support the Argyle Education Foundation’s Fund a Teacher campaign. The 11th annual Black Diamond Affair—A Night at the Ranch, presented by iTeach Texas—was a roaring success.

Nearly 350 were in attendance at the event which included an auction and dinner followed by music by George Dunham & the Bird Dogs along with Craig McDaniel. There were armadillo races and rollo roper contests as well as a mechanical bull for guests to ride.

Robert Burns, outgoing AEF Board President, was honored with the Adele Foster Award, for his many years of service and dedication to AEF and AISD.

Judson Clark, AEF Vice President, Development, reported that over $220,000 was raised to support the initiative to hire “above and beyond” teachers, while final numbers are expected to be higher.

Two years ago, the Argyle Education Foundation started the Fund a Teacher campaign, to help fund those “above and beyond” staff opportunities. It allows the district to hire teachers and staff that are above and beyond what is state mandated. It would also allow for additional subjects to be taught at any of the Argyle schools. The final goal is to raise $240,000 to fund four teachers in 2016-2017. For more information, please visit www.SupportArgyleISD.org.
