Say Thank You to Our School Board Members!

“Serving on a local school board is no easy task, particularly in today’s climate of rapid change and financial uncertainties. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. Overall, they represent you and take their leadership roles seriously by attending lengthy meetings; broadening their knowledge at conferences and seminars; and talking about the schools with business leaders, parents, and neighbors,” said Dr. Todd Stephens, Magnolia ISD superintendent.

“Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication of these local citizens who work without pay. So each year the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) encourages communities to show appreciation to these individuals for their unfailing commitment to the success of all students. The staff and students of our district applaud our board members for their vision and voice to help shape a better tomorrow,” he said.

“The students of Magnolia ISD benefit every day from the hard work and long hours contributed by our trustees. Serving as a crucial link between the community and classroom, this board is responsible for an annual budget of $98 million, almost 13,000 students, 1,600 employees, and 15 campuses. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated,” he said.

The 2015-2016 Board of Trustees are President Steve Crews, Vice President Gary Blizzard, Secretary Chuck Adcox, Assistant Secretary Kristi Baker, Trustee Joe Duncan, Trustee Deborah Rose Miller and Trustee Dr. Travis Moffatt.
