• School Board Candidates Sworn-In

    Dr. Jeff TurnerNewly elected School Board members, Judy Barbo (Pl. 6), and Tracy Fisher (Pl. 7), were sworn-in and completed their first trustee meeting on Monday, June 21. Interestingly, both have strong ties to Lubbock, Texas, and both have family members involved in public education.

    Judy's best advice to anyone thinking about running for school board is to start thinking about their "Why" long before the election and be sure to take time for a lot of self-reflection.

    Tracy believes her strong sense of justice and fairness stem from her roots and an interesting life. She has a deep respect for teachers. She recommends getting involved early (as she did) by volunteering to gain a good sense of what school is like today.
