NISD Trustees work tirelessly for benefit of all students, staff, and taxpayers

January is School Board Recognition Month, and Northside ISD joins the Texas Association of School Boards and other districts across the state to thank our locally elected trustees for their service, and to educate the community about the important role that a school board plays in shaping the lives of children and communities. This year’s theme is “Blooming with Potential: Planting Seeds of Success.”

Superintendent Brian Woods said that even though the District is making a special effort in January to show appreciation to Board members, their work takes a year-round commitment.

"Great leadership always begins with a willing heart, a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference,” he said. “These public servants are elected to serve by local citizens and receive no compensation for their tireless efforts."

"Board members are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their ultimate goal is always focused on the future success of every student enrolled in the district. Our district is enriched by the contributions of these local citizens who truly care about our kids,” Woods added. “We applaud their efforts to serve as advocates for our children and the voice of public education.

Serving on the Northside ISD Board are: President M’Lissa M. Chumbley, District 3; Vice President Carol Harle, Ph.D., District 6; Secretary Gerald B. Lopez, District 2; Joseph H. Medina, District 1; Robert (Bobby) Blount, Jr., District 4; Katie N. Reed, District 5; and Karen Freeman, District 7.

NISD Trustees will receive special recognition during the next regular Board meeting, Jan. 22, beginning at 7 p.m. at the NISD Central Office, 5900 Evers Road.
