EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Anthony Independent School District has announced that two of its schools have received the Purple Star Campus designation.

Anthony ISD says every year, the Texas Education Agency awards the Purple Star Campus designation to campuses with an assigned military liaison, student ambassadors and leaders that go the extra mile with initiatives to accommodate military families and their child’s educational needs.

The district says during the 2021-2022 school year, Anthony ISD launched a month-long recognition to celebrate April as Military Child Month. Students and staff participated in Purple Up Day, a day for everyone to wear purple in support of all military branches. AISD says the Board of Trustees and campuses also introduced a proclamation to celebrate military active and veteran families.
