»y DENSE CHUK
Incumbent Bene Spam filed Tuesday for re-ekctkw to her cwrert seat on the Neu Braunfels Independent School District Board of Trustees,
Spain was the second indi\-)dual to file for one of the four seats on the ballot for the Aug. 9 election. Spain, who is in her third year on the board, filed for one of the two at-large seats, which cover the entire school district. Computer technician Henry Garza filed for the District I seat Monday.
Spain, who has lived in New Braunfels for seven years, is married to San Antonio attorney Michael Spain. They have one child, Amanda Cate Spain, who graduates this week.
Spain, 49, has devoted time to a range of activities. She is a current volunteer with the city’s steering committee for the Master Plan, the YMCA committee and the Chamber’s Youth Leadership New Braunfels. She is a lifetime member of the PT A and a volunteer and board member for Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital.
She also has participated in the Texas Association of School Board Leadership program. Project Graduation and the American Cancer Society gala. This was her seventh year as a HOSTS volunteer, tutoring at three schools and volunteering at a fourth.
lf elected, Spain said her goal would be to keep the focus on what is best for children. She said every activity she has been involved with is committed to children, and despite previous claims by district patrons that the current board has lost that
focus, she said it had always been important to her.
“That’s why I ran in the first place, and that’s why I’m running again,”
Spain said. “Individually, you can keep that as your goal ... Individually that’s where I want to keep my focus.”
Spain said she is anxious to work with the new superintendent and stands ready to serve her constituents with a “willing ear.” She said she also has strived to “listen to both sides on every' issue.”
Spain, a former teacher and educational diagnostician, said she intended to keep the campaign for a seat on the board very positive to avoid any division in the community.
“I want them to look and see what I’ve done,” Spain said. “I want to run on my record because I work real hard.”
Also up for election are an at-large seat, the District I seat and the remaining year on the District 4 seat. Leo Chafin holds the other at-large seat, and said last week that he had not decided whether he would seek another term. District I is currently represented by Sylvia Sanchez. Sanchez was unavailable for comment regarding whether she would seek re-election. District 4 became vacant in April when Jaime Padilla resigned with a year remaining on his term.
NB1SD trustee elections will be Aug. 9, and filing for a seat on the ballot ends June 25.

The class will be conducted 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through June 18 on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Business and Industry Center at San Antonio College.
“We are very pleased to support this effort to strengthen home ownership in the community by providing important information to people who are thinking about buying a home,” said Interim President Robert E. Zeigler.
San Antonio College began the HUD partnership in March, and free home ownership classes have already been offered at the college.
“The class was very informative for first-time home buyers as well as for people who previously purchased a home," said Ester Coronado, a purchaser with the Alamo Community College District who attended a HELP class with her husband.
“The facilitators gave us some good pointers about looking for both new and older homes, questions to ask the seller, and the importance of having the home inspected before buying.”
Those who complete the program will receive a certificate of completion and may be entitled to a reduction of the cost of mortgage insurance.
The course deals with budgeting, locating your home, working with a real estate agent, handling contracts and negotiations finding a lender, qualifying for a loan, closing on the home, and dealing with the responsibilities of home ownership.
To register for the course or for additional information, call the San Antonio College /Continuing Education and Community Outreach Office at (210) 733-2666.
