As a proud alumnus, I am absolutely committed to providing the East Central community with an exceptional school system that equips its children for success well beyond high school. Although our school district has a long-standing reputation for excellence in many areas, we will continue to maintain an unrelenting sense of urgency. Teaching our children to read critically, write compellingly, think logically, and solve problems creatively are non-negotiables. We are equally committed to ensuring that ECISD students are ready for the workplace by the time they complete high school. The children of the East Central community must be taught to work harder AND smarter. If well prepared and informed, our students will be able to pursue a post-secondary credential that has value in today’s economy.
