“Doing what is best for kids” has been Gatesville Independent School District’s slogan for many years.
That phrase was coined by The Rev. Dr. Willie Clarke (1948-2013), who served on the GISD school board from 1984 to 1987.

Valedictorian of his high school class with several advanced degrees, Clarke knew the importance of education.
