AISD names new board officers

Thursday, January 21, 2016 by Courtney Griffin

At a special meeting Tuesday night, the Austin Independent School District elected new board officers. At-Large Trustee Kendall Pace will now serve as board president, replacing At-Large Trustee Gina Hinojosa, who resigned from the officer position. In her resignation announcement on Dec. 15, Hinojosa said she was stepping down because she had decided to run for the District 49 seat in the Texas House of Representatives. Filling the remaining two officer seats, District 6 Trustee Paul Saldaña will now serve as vice president, replacing District 5 Trustee Amber Elenz. District 4 Trustee Julie Cowan will serve as secretary, replacing District 2 Trustee Jayme Mathias. All new officers have served on the board since 2014.
