In 1986, Spring Elementary was renamed for J. O. Salyers and Gertie Mae Salyers. Mr. Salyers served as a trustee from 1938 to 1956. Mrs. Salyers’ most significant contributions were through the PTA. She served as president even before her children attended school, while they were in school and again as a grandmother. She also served as a Spring ISD election judge for more than 40 years. In 2003, a new Salyers Elementary School was constructed. The old building was torn down to make room for new construction at Carl Wunsche Sr. High School.
