Mesquite ISD’s Board of Trustees:
Committed to Student Achievement

A special student artwork display from several of our campuses will be just one of the ways the Mesquite ISD Board of Trustees is recognized at this week’s monthly meeting. January is School Board Recognition Month across the state of Texas after all.

Our Board members contribute countless hours each year governing by listening to staff and student concerns, recognizing outstanding programs and students, and much more. Members also attend seminars and training sessions to keep abreast of state and federal regulations and trends in educational leadership. They stay involved in community activities and spend many hours in the schools and at extracurricular events.

And talk about dedication. The seven members on our Board of Trustees have a combined 84.5 years of service to our school district.  Dr. Cary Tanamachi has served on our Board for a total of 26 years; President Robert Seward, 19 years; Gary Bingham and Kevin Carbo, 16 years; Vice President Phil Appenzeller, three years; Secretary Christina Hall, two and a half years; and Archimedes Faulkner two years, respectively. It’s impressive to note that Gary Bingham and Robert Seward are Mesquite High School graduates, too.

I am so proud to work with such a committed group and so thankful these professionals have chosen to offer their time and talents to Mesquite ISD.  The influence of their love of learning and concern and caring for our students, staff and the community should not be underestimated.
