La Porte ISD trustee Kathy Green has been elected to a second consecutive term as president of the Gulf Coast Area Association of School Boards (GCAASB) for the 2011-2012 school year.
The GCAASB is a voluntary organization composed of more than 50 school boards in the greater Houston area to enhance the quality of education for public school children in the Texas Gulf Coast area by providing education and information to local school boards and creating an opportunity for local school boards to impact legislation affecting the public schools.
The dues paid by GCAASB member school boards and associate members, who are supporters of public education, provide state-required training for local trustees at quarterly meetings, produce a regular newsletter, and support educational excellence at the school level through a scholarship program.
"The experience that Mrs. Green has gained on her local Board of Trustees will benefit all of the students, staffs and schools in the Gulf Coast Area Association as it is combined on the Executive Board with the experience of trustees from 14 other school districts," said GCAASB Executive Secretary Jerry Smith. "That leadership will be meaningful!"
In addition to Green, local trustees serving as 2011-2012 officers of the Gulf Coast Area Association of School Boards are First Vice President Becky Streetman of Huffman ISD, Second Vice President Sarah Winkler of Alief ISD, Secretary-Treasurer Wayne Schaper, Sr., of Spring Branch ISD, and Past President Marine Jones of Aldine ISD.
Local trustees serving as 2011-2012 GCAASB directors include Pete Vincent of Alvin ISD, Linda Huebner of Columbia-Brazoria ISD, Carl Burg of Goose Creek CISD, Charles Cunningham of Humble ISD and Joe Adams of Katy ISD. Also serving as 2011-2012 GCAASB directors are Georgan Reitmeier of Klein ISD, Kim Janke of Needville ISD, Jeffrey Mitchell of Spring ISD, Ettienne Zak of Stafford MSD and Mark Lewandowski of Tomball ISD.
