A second candidate is eying the open Place 3 seat on the Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees.
Flower Mound resident Angie Cox has filed to run for school board in the upcoming November 5th special election.
She joins Paige Shoven of Lewisville in the race for the position vacated last week by Dr. Mark Welding, who was only three months into his first term.
Cox, 43, touted her service to LISD and its partnering organizations of 18 years as a parent volunteer, business owner and community leader.
“The strength which LISD brings to our communities is a vital pillar that keeps our economy strong and draws people to move to cities in our district” said Cox.
“As a parent, business owner as well as district and community volunteer, service to LISD is in my heart and the opportunity to serve, in the role of trustee, is a commitment I have been considering for quite some time”
Cox serves on the LISD Education Foundation board and is a new addition to the LISD Bond Oversight Committee. She is also a member of the Women of Flower Mound, Friends of the Flower Mound Library, Keep Flower Mound Beautiful, Lewisville and Flower Mound chambers of commerce, PTAs and Flower Mound High School’s baseball and basketball booster clubs.
“It has been a privilege to have four children educated in LISD. Our family is grateful for the opportunities LISD has extended and I am ready to give back to this incredible district. I am a servant at heart and know what it takes to work on an effective team that can make a difference in the future of our children,” said Cox.
Cox and her husband, Stewart, have lived within LISD since 1995. She has sons at Flower Mound High School, McKamy Middle School, and a daughter at Liberty Elementary.
