“I believe that one should always be in the process of learning something new. Learning new things puts you in the driver’s seat for planning your future. Because the Belton Independent School District is on the cutting edge with technology and education, I believe that students in our area have the best seat available. My background in computers and my passion for learning makes it a natural fit for me to fulfill the role as a trustee and to assist BISD to continue on its cutting-edge path.”
