Longtime Clear Creek School Board Trustee Dee Scott has decided not to run for re-election for the seat she held since 2005. “It has been an honor to serve this exceptional school district where every child matters and every voice is heard,” she said. “I leave with wonderful memories and plan to still be heavily involved in our community’s education of children.”
In her nearly a decade on the school board, Scott has been instrumental in spearheading community service projects to benefit the district’s most at-risk students, whether it was the launch of the highly successful Leaders Make Readers program at League City Elementary, Ross Elementary and Stewart Elementary School or drumming up dollars to ensure students at Clear View High School had graduation gowns for the special day.
Since her election in 2005, Scott has supported the need for new school buildings to house a growing population, voted for innovative programs to meet the workforce needs in this community and across the globe, and created and nurtured relationships with local and state elected officials to develop education-friendly policy.
During her last general school board meeting on April 27, fellow school board members and the superintendent recognized and thanked Dee Scott for leading the way in CCISD. She told the crowd that while she will no longer be technically on the school board, she will still be heavily involved in the schools.
“The Clear Creek Independent School District Board of Trustees is a cohesive group of men and women committed to serving the needs of children and dreaming big for the future. While each school board member has their strengths, I think we would all agree Dee was our team mom,” Superintendent of Schools Greg Smith says.
Jay Cunningham and Trent Martin are running to fill the District 5 trustee position. Early voting runs through May 5 with Election Day Saturday, May 9.
