Julie Cowan is now a master trustee

The secretary of the Austin Independent School District Board of Trustees, Julie Cowan, is a master trustee. It’s a designation awarded to those who have completed the Texas Association of School Board’s yearlong Leadership program. She was one of 33 school board members in the class this year, which the district notes in a Wednesday press release “represents Texas school districts of all sizes and property wealth.” Additionally, Cowan is the new president of the Central Texas School Board Association. Cowan’s colleague on the board, Jayme Mathias, is also a master trustee. Fancy.
