CHS principal submits resignation

 

The resignation from Cuero High School principal Michael Cavanaugh was accepted at the Dec. 19 Cuero ISD board of trustees meeting. Cavanaugh’s last day of employment will be June 30, the end of his contract.
 
Cavanaugh has been with the district for 15 years. He served as an administrator for nine years and CHS principal for seven years.
 
“Mr. Cavanaugh served the district with honor and pride as he emulated his catch phrase, ‘It’s a great day to be a Gobbler.’  His leadership will be missed, and his legacy will live on through the students whose lives were touched during his tenure,” Cuero ISD superintendent James Haley told the Record in an email.

Items stolen from church Christmas Eve

 

First Baptist Church of Westhoff appeared to be broken into on Christmas Eve. The church is on U.S. Highway 87.
 
“One of our church members, the ground maintenance supervisor, was at the church to turn on the water because of the freeze we had,” said Suzanne Collins, church trustee and treasurer. “He was also turning the heater on because we had a Christmas Eve service that night. He was getting things ready and noticed the door was open a little bit. [...] It looks like the striker on the door had been pried.”
 
Collins said a lockbox and laptop computer was missing from the church pastor’s office. 
 
“We just want the documents back, we can always buy a new laptop,” Collins said.
