By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, July 18, 2012

NISD SCHOOL BOARD PRESIDENT EARNS MASTER TRUSTEE DESIGNATION

Northwest ISD School Board President Mel Fuller has earned the designation of Master Trustee after completing Leadership TASB, a year-long program sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).

The Leadership TASB class met in conjunction with the TASB’s Summer Leadership Institute in San Antonio in June. During the June 15 graduation ceremony, 31 school board members representing Texas school districts graduated and joined the ranks of more than 700 school board members statewide who are Leadership TASB alumni. Master Trustee status is the highest designation recognized by TASB.
