Filed under: Duncanville ISD,Schools |

Duncanville ISD – Duncanville ISD Board member Tom Kennedy earned the title of Master Trustee after completing a yearlong leadership program from the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).

The designation is the highest recognition TASB offers through its Leadership TASB program.

Mr. Kennedy is in his 20th year as a trustee for Duncanville ISD and is the longest-serving member currently on the board.

“I do this because I believe public education is so very important to the success of our students and our community,” Kennedy said. “I put a very high priority on a good, quality education and believe by serving, I can help provide the quality that our kids deserve. I love seeing the successes we have had, and I want to try and make sure they continue. I also enjoy giving back to a community that has been very supportive of my family and me.”

Leadership TASB is a development program designed to take experienced board members to a new level of service and leadership by exposing them to a variety of issues, people, activities and locations. It is also an opportunity for school board trustees from across the state to work together to enhance school governance in Texas.

The program is led by nationally known speakers and experts in their field and includes visits to successful schools and those implementing innovative programs.
