Newly appointed TISD trustee takes office

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

Tyler ISD has appointed Mr. Eleno Licea to replace Mr. Gene Shull as the TISD Board of Trustee for Single Member District 1. Eleno took office in a special meeting held in the school district's Administrative Office.

"We're excited that Mr. Licea has expressed interest in public education and Tyler ISD," said Ron Vickery, President Tyler ISD Board of Trustees.  "We will miss Mr. Shull in his official capacity as a trustee, but I know he will continue to support our efforts.  We're excited Mr. Licea will join our board membership team and look forward to a great partnership."

Former Trustee Gene Shull had to resign from the position because he is moving out of District 1. After being sworn in, Mr Licea stayed and participated in the District's Special Meeting.

"It's an honor to be on the Board," said Licea.  "I am a product of public education and this is an opportunity to represent my district and give back to the community."

The newly appointed trustee will fill the position for another four months.  The seat will then be placed on the May 9, 2009 general election ballot to fill the unexpired term, which expires in May, 2010.
