Fundraiser introduces AISD’s new superintendent

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Austin Education Fund kicks off its fall campaign this Friday with a televised fundraiser giving a special welcome to Austin ISD’s new superintendent, Dr. Stephanie S. Elizalde. Elizalde, who previously served as chief schools officer for Dallas ISD, is the school district’s first-ever Latina superintendent. The event, which spotlights student performances and the work of the AISD Crisis Support Fund, will also feature Austin Mayor Steve Adler, AISD Board of Trustees President Geronimo Rodriguez and Austin Ed Fund Executive Director Michelle Wallis. “We want to thank our community for giving and hopefully inspire others to support our students, staff and families. This event, along with the campaign, is meant to celebrate the good as we continue to tackle the challenges, together as a community,” Wallis said in a news release. The virtual event will be televised on AISD TV’s Channel 22 at noon and 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2 (and at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. in Spanish) and will also be streamed live on Austin Ed Fund’s YouTube channel.
