Carroll School Board Trustee Honored by State & Hometown

Carroll ISD School Board Trustee Michelle Moore recently received two distinguished honors.

Moore, who joined the CISD Board in 2015, has earned the designation of Master Trustee through the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). This is the highest designation recognized by TASB.

“Leadership TASB was a unique opportunity to learn and grow as a Trustee,” Moore said. “The program allowed me to build relationships with school board members from around the state and gain insight on the challenges and opportunities facing public schools in Texas. I believe this experience will make me a better Trustee for CISD.”

Leadership TASB is a unique board development program 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 year-long program. The program is composed of multiple training sessions held among a cohort group of 28 to 36 participants. Class members are selected for demonstrated leadership in their local district and communities, and for their representation of the diversity of Texas school districts.

Selected by TASB, the group participated in a yearlong education leadership study program. These trustees represent school districts of all sizes, with student populations of 1,000 to 159,000, and reflect a similar range of property wealth.

Moore also received recognition from her hometown.

She was named the 2017 Volunteer of the Year by the Southlake Chamber of Commerce. Moore served the community in multiple roles — Co-Coach with Odyssey of the Mind program in CISD, NCL Southlake Fashion Show Sponsorship Co-Chair, Eubanks Intermediate School and Carroll Elementary PTO fundraiser, member of the Carroll Education Foundation Advisory Committee, Southlake Association for Gifted and Talented Grant Chairperson and member of the CISD School Board.

“I’m honored to have been selected Volunteer of the Year for doing what I love — helping our schools and kids succeed and flourish,” said Moore, who serves as secretary on the CISD Board. “I am blessed to be part of a community that is so generous with its time and treasure.”
