"I would like to thank you and the previous six Board of Trustees that have allowed me to lead this amazing district. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you, the community, the parents, and the children of GISD for the past seven years.

There is still much to be done and I have faith in the Board to find the right person that will continue to lead the district in a more positive future." Read more...
