The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has selected Humble ISD Trustee Nancy Morrison to the Leadership TASB Class of 2017. She joins 34 school board leaders from across the state based upon a written application for the yearlong leadership program.
TASB is a nonprofit association established in 1949 for school board members, the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.3 million public school students.
Morrison was elected to the Humble ISD School Board in 2015. She chairs the Board’s Legislative Committee and serves on the Finance and Program Evaluation committees.
Morrison earned a bachelor’s degree at Midwestern State University and a master’s degree at Stephen F. Austin State University. She is a former teacher, assistant principal and principal who served Humble ISD families in Humble, Kingwood, Atascocita, Lakeshore and Summerwood. Morrison and her husband Ron Morrison are “empty nesters” and their children Mike and Marji received a quality education in Humble ISD. Mike serves as a U.S. Army officer after attending West Point. Marji is an assistant principal in New Caney ISD.
Before retiring in 2014, Morrison enjoyed the opportunity to open Lakeshore Elementary as the school's founding principal. Morrison was able to create a campus culture while building successful relationships within the surrounding community.
Morrison looks forward to discussing education with school board members from across Texas and plans to bring back insightful information to the Humble ISD Board Room.
“I look forward to applying what I’ve learned from Leadership TASB when making decisions and participating in discussions locally in Humble ISD, regionally at the Gulf Coast Area Association of School Boards, and on the state level through the Humble ISD Legislative Committee,” Morrison said.
Morrison is also a retired member of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association and the Association of Texas Professional Educators. In addition to her school board service, she has served as a substitute principal in a neighboring school district. She also is a member of the Humble Area Retired Teachers Association (HARTA).
“My life has been dedicated to Texas public education for over 40 years,” Morrison said. “Educating children is my lifelong passion and by participating in Leadership TASB, I will gain a broader, more informed viewpoint of the state of education in Texas.
Her knowledge is honed to the academic, technological, and social skills that students from Pre-K to grade 12 need to become the wage earners, caregivers, and leaders of our future.
