New HISD Board President Toasted By Friends and Community Leaders

Paula Harris was recently elected to serve as President of the Houston Independent School Board of Trustees.

 Friends and community leaders gathered this week to toast Harris and hear some of her plans for the state’s largest school district. The event was held at La Griglia.

She and her fellow trustees will have their hands full during this era of state education funding cuts and concern about test scores, teacher bonuses and class size.

For  now, it was great that she had the time to celebrate her new leadership position.

According to the HISD website, Harris is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in petroleum engineering. In her 20-year career in the oil industry, Harris has held a variety of positions, including field engineer managing operations on offshore rigs throughout the Gulf of Mexico.
