Since many of the magnet schools are being renamed currently, that the Northside Independent School District Health Careers school be renamed in Shirley Schreiber, RN's honor.  This would be a well deserved honor for Mrs. Schreiber and a fitting tribute to her dedication, contributions, and commitment to NISD students and their families. The reasons are many but some are below. 

Shirley was a stalwart guardian of student health.  Not only in oversight of state required reports and training, but also in having Northside take a stand in recruiting and retaining school nurses to provide the best care for all students at any health level.  So that truly, no student would be left behind. She was a mentor and a stronghold for the nurses and inspired her nurses that we could be a pivotal change in all our students lives by ensuring they had all their health needs met.

Shirley was passionate about Northside ISD. She was their first and only Director of Health Services until her recent death. She believed that if a student’s physical and mental needs were met the ability to learn would be presented. She was so passionate about this belief that she pioneered the partnership that Northside enjoy with her old Alta mater, University of Incarnate Word.  Their Optometry School to be exact. This provided the district an avenue for children in need to get free eye exams and glasses if needed. Mrs. Shirley said to me many times “a child that cannot see or hear will not learn to their fullest abilities.”

Shirley lived to help Northside to be a safe and healthy environment for learning. She gave her all to this district, the students, and her employees. She is an inspiration that is seldom seen in life. She and Northside deserves to carry on her inspiration. This would be a well deserved honor for Mrs. Schreiber and a fitting tribute to her dedication, contributions, and commitment to NISD students and their families.
