Wednesday, December 16, 2020 by Claire McInerny, KUT
Lynn Boswell and Noelita Lugo will be the newest members of the Austin Independent School District’s Board of Trustees. Boswell will represent District 5, which covers parts of Central and Southwest Austin, and Lugo will be the newest at-large trustee, a seat covering the entire school district. Boswell, a documentary filmmaker who earned her law degree from the University of Texas, is the former president of the Austin PTA and an AISD parent. Lugo is also a parent to kids in the district and helped start Save Austin Schools, a group that fought against school closures in 2019. She has a master’s degree in social work and works in public policy, focusing on family issues like workforce development and young parent programs. In a press release, Lugo thanked the voters of Travis County, saying she decided to run because of her “serious commitment to educational equity,” adding that it “is imperative every kid across our city has equal access to success in the classroom and in life.”
