Connally, a long-time associate of former President Johnson, served Johnson as secretary of the House of Representatives in 1939 and later as Administrative Assistant of the United States Senate in 1949. Between those two assignments, Connally earned a distinguished World War II record. Upon his return from naval service in 1946, Connally became president, general manager, and attorney for radio station KVET in Austin, Texas, a business he helped organize. President Kennedy appointed Connally as Secretary of the Navy in 1961. Connally later successfully ran for Governor of Texas, serving from 1963-1968. Gov. Connally was critically wounded while riding with President Kennedy when the President was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. After his tenure as Governor, Connally served on President Nixon's Advisory Council on Executive Organization in 1969-1970, and subsequently was appointed by the President to be a member of the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board in 1970. Connally then was nominated by President Nixon to be the 61st Secretary of Treasury. He took office in 1971. John Connally was known as a Texas Giant and the "Educational Governor of Texas.” Connally died June 15, 1993.

While one-on-one communication is the best, in a District as large as Northside ISD it is sometimes difficult. Because we want our parents to stay informed, NISD has several ways that parents and other interested citizens can stay informed about the successes and challenges of San Antonio’s premier school district, as well as news about their children’s schools.
