GCISD Trustee Chosen For Leadership TASB 2016
GCISD Trustee Becky St. John has been chosen for Leadership TASB 2016. The Texas Association of School Boards program is designed to take experienced board members to a new level of service and leadership by exposing them to a variety of issues, people, activities, and locations during a yearlong program. Class members are selected for demonstrated leadership in their local district and communities, and for the representation of the diversity of Texas school districts.
St. John was elected to the GCISD Board in May 2009. She has served as Board Secretary from 2012-13 and 2014-15. She has been a member of the District Excellence Committee since 2006, and has served on the Budget “My board colleagues statewide who have completed LTASB, including our own Trustee Jess Rodriguez, encouraged me to apply for the program. I’m honored to have been chosen and I’m looking forward to sharing what we’re doing here in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD as well as bringing back some of the knowledge and expertise of my LTASB classmates,” St. John said.
As a member of the 2016 Leadership TASB class, St. John is one of about three-dozen participants in the annual board development program. It all starts at the TASA/TASB Convention to be held October 2-4 in Austin. Five weekend sessions are held throughout the year at locations around the state, concentrating on teamwork, trusteeship, equity, diversity, and visionary leadership.
