San Benito, Texas – San Benito Schools leaders have announced that they will be hosting a Dedication Ceremony to Rename their Auxiliary Services Building in honor of the late Jana Kay Landrum, a long-time district employee. The ceremony will be held at 9 am on Thursday, October 8, 2020, at the Auxiliary Services Building (2001 UTEX Drive) in San Benito. 

“Ms. Landrum was an advocate for education, a proud San Benito High School graduate, and she dedicated her career to service in public education,” expressed Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nate Carman. “We are grateful for her over 32 years of service to our district and community, and we hope to honor her legacy by dedicating this building in her honor,” added Carman. 

In January of this year, San Benito Schools staff members mourned the loss of an esteemed colleague and friend, Jana Kay Landrum, the former Child Nutrition Program Director.  Jana had just retired after a combined 32 years of service to San Benito Schools. Jana had wholeheartedly dedicated nearly 40 years of service to numerous public school districts throughout Texas.  Her commitment to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child Nutrition Programs had a significant impact on the wellbeing of thousands of students in San Benito, San Antonio, Brownsville, and Los Fresnos. She also worked as a nutritionist, dietary consultant, and dietetic technician after earning her Bachelor of Science in Home Economics (Nutrition) from the University of Texas in Austin.  She was a 1971 San Benito High School graduate.

“She was an exemplar employee who dedicated her time to the well-being of our students across the district and she is dearly missed,” said San Benito CISD Board President Orlando López. “Her legacy will live on in our district through this dedication,” he added.

All media are invited to attend. For the well-being and safety of all invited guests, the district will be practicing social distancing. Masks will be required throughout the ceremony.
