BISD Breaks Ground on Voss Middle School

BISD Breaks Ground on Voss Middle School
Posted on 12/05/2017
Family  members of the late Capt. Mark Tyler Voss turned the first shovels of dirt as ground was broken on the new Boerne ISD middle school that bears the name of the military hero.

The ceremony, which took place on a chilly, bluster December morning, attracted a number of community leaders, veterans, neighbors and school officials.  The school will be the district's third middle school and will open fall 2019.

BISD Board of Trustees president Rich Sena presided over the ceremony.  The Boerne High School choir opened with the National Anthem.  Rev. Henry Schulte led an invocation.  Prior to the ceremonial groundbreaking, the Champion High School choir sang America the Beautiful.

Tyler Voss graduated from Boerne High School in 2004 and from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2008 with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. He was commissioned in the U.S. Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant.

Voss was promoted to Captain on May 28, 2012, and became Aircraft Commander on March 14, 2013. Voss was killed May 3, 2013, near Chon-Aryk, Kyrgyzstan, in the crash of a KC-135 aircraft he was piloting. He was part of the 93rd Air Refueling Squadron supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. 

Capt. Mark Tyler Voss Middle School is being built on district property at the corner of Highway 46 East and FM 3351, on land very near Tyler's boyhood home.
