Trustees advance to state competition for best School Board in Texas

July 28, 2014

Education Service Center, Region 20 has named the Northside ISD Board of Trustees the 2014 Region 20 Honor Board. (Region 20 encompasses 15 Central Texas counties and 51 school districts.) The NISD Board now advances to the Texas Outstanding School Board competition.

As 2014 Region 20 Honor Board, the NISD Board now represents Region 20 in the state competition that will name the five 2014 Texas Honor Boards. From those five, the Outstanding School Board in Texas will be announced at the Texas Association of School Administrators and Texas Association of School Boards State Convention. All regional and honor boards are recognized at the convention, which will be held in Dallas, Sept. 26-28.

“We are extremely proud of our Trustees,” stated Superintendent Brian T. Woods. “These public servants voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing a large school district and serve as advocates for each student, employee, and taxpayer in our District.”

“It is just as challenging to maintain the excellence that Northside is known for, than it is to achieve it, and our Board continues to meet the challenge of reaching and exceeding the expectations that we set by ourselves as well as those set by our community,” Dr. Woods adds.

The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) created the School Board Awards Program in 1971 to recognize school boards whose dedication and ethical service have made a positive impact on the schoolchildren of Texas.

Serving on the Northside ISD Board are: President Robert (Bobby) Blount, Jr., District 4; Vice President Katie N. Reed, District 5; Secretary Bennie L. Cole, District 2; George Lynn Britton, Jr., District 1; M’Lissa M. Chumbley, District 3; Dr. Carol Harle, District 6; and Karen Freeman, District 7.
