TRINITY — Trinity ISD trustee Elizabeth King has been selected by the Texas Association of School Boards as one of 27 school board members in Texas to join the 2023 Leadership TASB Class.
The advanced education program will take place over the course of five sessions throughout the year and will focus on solutions to challenges that public education is facing.
Upon completion, participants who meet all of the required elements will graduate as a Master Trustee which is the highest designation recognized by TASB.
Elizabeth is a 1991 graduate of Trinity High School. She and her husband Tim have two children, Reagan and Garrett, who are TISD alumni as well. She has worked as a juvenile probation officer in Trinity County for the past 23 years and, “has unique insight when it comes to difficulties our youth and families face.”
King said, “I often hear the good and bad things people have to say about our town and our schools. Their honesty sheds light on what really matters to people when it comes to their children and their education. What we do with that knowledge is the key to doing what is best for our students.”
