Mansfield ISD Celebrates Its Dedicated School Board

January is School Board Recognition Month, and Mansfield ISD is proud to celebrate the men and women who serve as its school board members.

Board members, also called trustees, are a link between the community and classroom. They are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools. The trustees are representatives and advocates who oversee the management of the school district, ensure financial accountability and adopt policies that support the district’s mission and vision.

With every decision that is made, the school board keeps MISD’s values in mind: students first, continuous improvement, integrity, communication, positive relationships and resiliency.

“I am so blessed to work alongside our school members to provide the best education for students and a great workplace for staff members,” said Superintendent Dr. Kimberley Cantu. “They volunteer their time, effort and energy for this community, and they are some of Mansfield ISD’s greatest supporters and advocates. As this new year kicks off, I want to send a huge ‘thank you’ to our board members. I know that I, along with the entire Mansfield ISD community, am appreciative of them this month and throughout the year.”

The members of the Mansfield ISD school board are:

  • Michelle Newsom, President (Place 1)
  • Desiree Thomas, Vice President (Place 2)
  • Randall Canedy, Secretary (Place 3)
  • Keziah Valdes Farrar (Place 4)
  • Karen Marcucci (Place 5)
  • Warren Davis (Place 6)
  • Darrell Sneed (Place 7)

Mansfield ISD joins the more than 1,000 school districts across the state that will be celebrating the countless contributions school board members have made to Texas students and public schools. The theme for this year's recognition is "Rising Above."
