Two new faces are on the Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees. Tracy Scott Miller (left) and Kristi Hassett were sworn into office Monday night at the LISD Bolin Administrative Center.
Miller defeated longtime trustee Carol Kyer in Place 7 on May 10 and Hassett won a three-way race for the Place 6 seat held by Mike McDaniel, who did not run for re-election.
Hassett and Miller will serve their first terms, which expire in 2017.
A longtime Flower Mound resident and Marcus High School graduate, Hassett said that she has a passion for education and the Speak Up for Texas Public Schools initiative.
In addition to her work locally, she is an advocate at the state level, testifying in front of the Texas Senate Education Committee and House of Representatives Public Education Committee. Hassett continues to work with Texas PTA and Texans Advocating for Meaningful Student Assessment, and served on LISD’s House Bill 5 Graduation Plan Committee.
Hassett spent the last 10 years volunteering for many LISD and PTA initiatives. Currently, she is the Flower Mound High School Legislative Chair and an active member in LISD’s INSIDE Community Leadership Program.
Before taking the opportunity to stay home and raise her family, she worked for BancTec and FedEx. Hassett and her husband, Mike, reside in Flower Mound, along with their three sons who attend LISD schools.
A longtime resident of LISD, Miller said that he desires to see an educational environment that enables students to achieve success in life.
