The Beaumont Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) grant caravan stopped at seven Beaumont Independent School District campuses Dec. 1 to make teachers’ and students’ wishes come true with hands-on educational tools that inspire creative learning in the classroom.

Members and friends of the foundation rode out with the BPSF Grant Caravan bus Friday to drop off the learning tools requested, and to present winning educators with glass apples in recognition of their dedication to academic excellence.

Experience. Transparency. Accountability. Equality.

These are just a few of the key components of office Tina Bradley promises to bring to the bench if elected the next judge of Jefferson County’s 172nd District Court.

“I think everybody should be treated equally – no matter what,” Bradley said. “Anybody that comes in my courtroom will be treated with civility, respect, and fairness.”
