Community Involvement

Education and work experience are important but one of the key elements of being a successful School Board Trustee is to have a strong understanding of and relationship with the various schools, teachers and administrators.  Having ushered two students through the CISD from K-12, I’ve had the opportunity to see the needs of our students and teachers from the inside.
