Melissa Collier, At-Large Trustee for Lubbock ISD, announced her intention today to seek re-election to the Board of Trustees in May 2012.  

Collier was elected to the board in May 2010.  She currently serves on the finance committee and is the chairperson of the ad hoc technology committee.

Collier, 37, is a self-employed CPA.  She currently serves on the LISD Foundation for Excellence Board and acts as Board Secretary for the Children's Home of Lubbock.  She enjoys volunteering her time in Lubbock ISD classrooms, as well as serving on the Honey Elementary PTA.

Melissa and her husband Scott are natives of Lubbock.  They are both graduates of Monterey High School and Texas Tech University.  Their children Campbell, 9, and Will, 6, attend Honey Elementary. 

Collier's family is deeply rooted in Lubbock, and she is committed to the success of Lubbock ISD.  She is encouraged by the progress that has been made during the past two years, and pledges to continue working to ensure that the LISD Board is fulfilling the mission of focusing on "Every Child Every Day".

"I love Lubbock and want to see the success of all children in this district," said Collier. "I feel a responsibility to give back to a community and a district that has given so much to me."
