Alvin ISD School Board Trustee Tiffany Wennerstrom was recently elected as a Director of the Gulf Coast Area Association of School Boards (GCAASB) for the 2015-2016 school year.
The GCAASB is a voluntary organization composed of more than 5 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 mission of the organization is 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 the legislative process affecting public education.
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 local school level through a scholarship program.
“The experience that Mrs. Wennerstrom has gained on the 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!”
“I am deeply honored to be able to represent the students, staff, and citizens of Alvin ISD in this manner. I look forward to working with others from the Gulf Coast Area in improving the lives of our students,” Ms. Wennerstrom said.
