WACOAN: School Safety

Published August 2018

an interview with Dr. Marcus Nelson, Waco ISD superintendent; David Wrzesinski, safety coordinator, Robinson ISD; and Jenipher Janek, crisis response team leader for Education Service Center Region 12.

_______________

Over the last six years in Region 12 — which serves over 161,000 students across 12 counties and 77 school districts, plus charter, private and parochial schools — Janek says there have been 70 human losses, mostly of students. Some of those have been medical, some accidental, some vehicular. There was one homicide.

“The majority have been suicides,” Janek said. “It’s the No. 1 reason why we are called to schools, and it accounts for half of the fatalities.”

WACOAN: Wacoan of the Year: LaDainian Tomlinson

This is my ninth time to write Wacoan of the Year, a lengthy profile for the WACOAN magazine of a person who has been in the news during the year. It was an honor to speak with LaDainian Tomlinson, who was inducted to the Pro Hall of Fame in August and whose acceptance speech is more of sermon, calling all of us to unite as part of Team America.

WACOAN: Fail Better

For eight years I wrote a column for the WACOAN magazine called “Musings.” Only a few of them are online, but I’m going to link to them over the next nine weeks. Writing a monthly 800-word column was one of the harder writing tasks I’ve undertaken, and I think it’s also where I did some of my best work. Hope you enjoy!
