Pearland ISD Trustee Completes Leadership TASB Training

Pearland Independent School District Trustee, Crystal Carbone, recently earned the designation of Master Trustee upon completion of Leadership Texas Association of School Boards (TASB). Carbone joins the ranks of more than 900 school board members statewide, including Pearland ISD master trustee Lance Botkin and former trustees Rebecca Decker and Virgil Gant.

The 2022 Leadership TASB class, composed of 36 school board members across Texas, made presentations of their team’s findings following yearlong research. Carbone’s research focused on technology in Texas school districts and its impact on Texas public education. Throughout the program, participants received extensive training in effective board governance and engaged with renowned education experts. Members who completed all required elements of the study program earned Master Trustee status, the highest designation recognized by TASB.

Leadership TASB is sponsored in part by H-E-B. TASB is a voluntary, nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local Texas school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.4 million public school students.
