My Commitment Letter
Dear Fellow Fort Bend ISD community:
It is an honor to announce my candidacy for Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees Position 7.
I moved to Fort Bend County in 1976 as a child and attended all East Side Fort Bend ISD schools: Blueridge ES, Briargate ES, Missouri City Jr. High, and Willowridge HS. I am proud to have graduated as a FBISD Willowridge HS Eagle in 1989. I returned to my hometown of Missouri City in 1995 and later became a homeowner and taxpayer of Missouri City in 2000. I have lived in the Fort Bend ISD community consistently for 24 years.
My core belief, as a citizen, has been to live in a school district that has a reputation of valuing children’s education and respecting tax payers’ dollars. I remain involved as a parent in my children’s education and has done so from the beginning to see this belief realized. I take a hands on approach in the lives of my children and for the betterment of my community. Over 20 years, I have served my community as an education activist and student advocate. My active involvement earned me the recognition as a community leader and lead organizer for more equity in education, stronger and sustainable school programs, and enhanced community partnerships.
With the support from my loving husband, Larry and our seven (7) daughters, most of whom attended FBISD schools, I was fortunate to have volunteered throughout Fort Bend. I served as an active member and in executive leadership roles on multiple PTOs, PTAs and Booster Clubs at various campuses on the East and West side of FBISD. I helped these schools raise over $100,000 combined, by spearheading fundraisers and increasing their membership participation. I have served (and continue to serve) as a committed member to multiple Campus Based Leadership Teams (CBLT) on the East and West side of FBISD. I was selected to serve on the original FBISD Facilities Master Planning in 2013-2014 as a Steering Committee Member. Recently, I served as a Steering Committee Member for Willowridge HS P-Tech Early College Program. As a champion for early literacy and full day Pre-K, I was sought after as a community leader to advise on innovative strategies for the Ridgemont Early Learning Center and Ridgemont Early Intervention Center.
