January is School Board Recognition Month, and Mansfield ISD proudly honors the men and women who serve as its school board members.
The board members, or trustees, are representatives and advocates who prioritize the needs and interests of students. They work hard to oversee the management of the school district, ensure financial accountability and adopt policies that support the district’s mission and vision.
This past year was especially challenging to maneuver, but the members of the MISD School Board remained focused on navigating to success while safely keeping the education process going amid a pandemic.
“Being a board member is a volunteer position that is an act of love and dedication. Our school board members are invaluable, and I am blessed to be able to work alongside them,” said Superintendent Dr. Kimberley Cantu. “I can confidently say that all of the individuals serving on the MISD School Board do so because they genuinely care for our students and want to best support our staff members. On behalf of Mansfield ISD, I would like to send a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to our board members this month and throughout the year.”
The members of the Mansfield ISD school board are:
- Courtney Lackey Wilson, President (Place 7)
- Michelle Newsom, Vice President (Place 1)
- Desiree Thomas, Secretary (Place 2)
- Randall Canedy (Place 3)
- Karen Marcucci, (Place 5)
- Warren Davis (Place 6)
The Place 4 seat is vacant pending the results of the May 2021 election.
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.
