School Board Appreciation

January is School Board Recognition Month and Royse City ISD is celebrating its trustees for their dedication and commitment to the district and its students. The Royse City ISD Board of Trustees is composed of seven board members who are elected by Royse City ISD voters to serve for overlapping terms of three years each. 

“This group of seven community servants are no doubt connected to the community and dedicated students, staff and taxpayers. They represent years of volunteerism and experience,” said Royse City ISD Interim Superintendent Dr. Amy Anderson. “The willingness and ability of our school board to work together to set our students and staff up for success is special. I thank each of them for their many hours away from home in meetings, trainings, committees, visiting campuses and more to help make Royse City ISD an amazing place.”

Royse City ISD School Board Members:

  • Bobby Summers, Place 1

  • Amanda Self, Place 2

  • Mike Anderson, Place 3 and Board Secretary

  • Eric Fort, Place 4

  • Scott Muckensturm, Place 5 and Board President

  • Dr. Brian Zator, Place 6 and Board Vice President

Dan Troxell, executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards, applauded the efforts of volunteer trustees in providing leadership and good governance so that school districts can focus on educating the 5.4 million public schoolchildren in their care.

“Texas school boards are so important because they bring a deep understanding of the needs and aspirations of their local communities to their role,” Troxell said. “Boards lead their districts by providing oversight, setting goals, overseeing the budget, and selecting and evaluating the superintendent. These volunteers serve for the betterment of their communities.”
