TISD School Board Appoints New Trustee

Tyler's school board has added a new face to its panel. The board appointed Kristen Baldwin as fourth district trustee. She replaces Dan Bolin who recently stepped down from the position. Baldwin has three children in TISD schools and formerly worked as an accountant.

She beat out chemical engineer, Phillip Davis for the seat. The board will meet Tuesday in executive session to discuss the sale of two Tyler Jet airplanes. The planes were seized by Smith County after Tyler Jet accrued $1.2 million in back taxes.
