New District Receptionist Welcomes Visitors to Administration Building
Visitors and callers to the Belton ISD Administration Building may have noticed a new smiling face and cheerful voice when they reached out to the school district since returning from winter break.
It might even be familiar.
Rebecca Harris is the new district receptionist at the Administration Building, but she’s not new to Belton ISD.
“I’ve been with Belton ISD for 21 years,” Harris said. “I started as a school nutrition cashier at Belton Junior High and have also worked at Lake Belton Middle School, Belton High School and Belton New Tech @Waskow in a variety of positions — from classroom paraprofessional to assistant principal secretary to campus secretary. I truly love the Big Red Community and look forward to how I’ll be able to serve families in this new role.”
As the district receptionist, Harris is on the frontline of customer service for the entire school system.
“I get to set the tone for the student, parent and community experience,” she said. “It’s a big responsibility, but I’m up for the challenge. I am a firm believer that if you treat people the way you would want to be treated, in the end, your kindness will win almost anyone over.”
Harris and her husband, Leonard, have five adult children who all graduated from Belton High School. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and attending Belton ISD athletic events — soccer games are her favorite. She’s also active in her church.
“I am thankful for this new opportunity that the district has allowed me to embark on,” Harris said. “Parents are partners in Belton ISD, and I’m grateful to be in a support position where I can help foster that collaboration.”
The Administration Building, located at 400 N. Wall St. in Belton, houses many of the district’s administrative teams, including Teaching & Learning, Student Services and Communications. It is open Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
