LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) -The UISD is looking to honor its current superintendent by naming its newest elementary school after him.

The school district will name the campus after Roberto J. Santos who will be retiring this summer after 39 years of service.

Over the course of 16 years as superintendent of schools, Mr. Santos worked endlessly with the board and the community to construct eight new elementary schools, four middle schools, four ninth-grade campuses, and one new high school.

Santos says that he is both honored and humbled as he prepares to retire and reflects on what the district has accomplished.

The campus is slated to open in the fall and will accommodate up to 950 students in the Winfield subdivision.
