We are named after Mr. Jim G. Martin - The NISD School Board named Northside's 67th elementary school for Jim G. Martin in honor of a man who dedicated his career to education. As an engineer, Martin spent 30 years working for public school districts, making sure students were educated in modern, durable, and energy-efficient schools and oversaw the renovations and construction of dozens of schools.
As NISD's assistant superintendent for Facilities & Operations, Martin's uncompromising character and honesty earned him the respect of colleagues, employees, members of the construction industry.
