On Monday, January 22, 2007 the Socorro Independent School broke ground to the 38th campus named in honor of a long-time educator, the late Dr. Sue A. Shook. Dr. Shook served the learning community close to 30 years, providing outstanding leadership in the state and nation by bringing light to Year-Round Education and being instrumental in teacher preparedness programs. Since it opened its doors in July of 2007, Dr. Sue Shook Elementary has been recognized by the state, region, and district for its student academic achievement and innovativeness of academic programs to accelerate learning.
Today, the building that sits in a 25-acre site houses 930 students and continues to alleviate the growing population in the Horizon City area.
