Carroll ISD School Board Appoints New Trustee

Michelle_MooreThe Carroll ISD School Board held a special meeting Tuesday to interview and appoint a new Trustee to fill the current vacancy.

The Board approved Michelle Moore as the newest Place 1 Trustee. Moore fills the vacancy left after the resignation of Trustee Craig Rothmeier in May. The Board interviewed five top candidates before reconvening to vote.

Moore will serve in the vacancy until the May 2016 election when voters will elect a candidate to serve out the remaining final year for Place 1. Moore will have the choice whether or not to run in the May 2016 election. The seat will come up for election again for a three-year term in May 2017.

Moore has been an active volunteer in Carroll ISD serving in multiple capacities. She is a board member on the Carroll Education Foundation and serves as the Grants Committee Chair. Moore was also a member of the district’s Strategic Planning Committee and is active in the PTO. This year, she was recognized as the Eubanks Intermediate School Volunteer of the Year.

“We are excited to have appointed Michelle Moore to the Board,” CISD School Board President Christopher Archer said. “Michelle brings a great deal of experience and involvement within our district, schools and community. We believe that her passion for serving and her previous experiences will make her a great addition to the CISD Board of Trustees. It was however, a difficult selection process based upon all our highly-qualified applicants.”

Moore also serves as a Board member for the Southlake Association of the Gifted and Talented and in 2014 she participated in the Carroll Leadership Academy for Supporting Success (CLASS).

“I am honored to have been selected to fill Place 1 on the CISD School Board and the opportunity to serve the Southlake community in this important role,” Moore said. “I am committed to building on the Dragon tradition of excellence and helping each student reach their full potential.”

Moore has two children in the district attending Dawson Middle School and Carroll Elementary.

“Mrs. Moore will be an excellent addition to our Board and is a shining example of the talented, passionate parents and members of our community,” Superintendent Dr. David Faltys said. “We are committed to maintaining excellence in our school district and Mrs. Moore shares that same vision.”
