“Rebecca Fox has my wholehearted endorsement for Trustee, in part because her many hours of training show she has dedicated herself to the craft which is school board service.
Everyone knows about Rebecca's enthusiastic attendance at school events, but not everyone knows she is just as enthusiastic to do the hard work needed to be a truly effective trustee. She has earned the distinction “Master Trustee” by completing the year-long Leadership TASB (Texas Association of School Boards) program, in which “participants...discover solutions for today’s public education challenges and learn how to address the challenges the future is expected to bring.” The elite program is not open to everyone—members are selected for demonstrated leadership in their local ISD and community—and Rebecca is the only current Katy ISD trustee with the distinction. She has hundreds of hours of additional training (see the continuing education report on the board member page on Katyisd.org) but the “LTASB” hours represent time working on a complex problem and report due at the end of the program. This “dissertation” represents Rebecca’s willingness to tackle the hard problems facing public education. Additionally, Rebecca works hard to represent Katy ISD to the state legislature, and actively works with them on educational issues such as education reform, finance reform, etc.
Other endorsements will praise her dedication to students and teachers and her other distinctions and honors, but as a former trustee, I know what behind-the-scenes work Rebecca has done to become our most-trained trustee. Her dedication to the craft is also evident every month in the questions she asks at the meetings which show me her hours of preparation before each meeting. She proudly has my vote and my endorsement for trustee.”
Former Katy ISD Trustee
"I support Rebecca Fox's candidacy for reelection to the Katy ISD Board of Trustees. Character, integrity and honesty are not just words for this candidate. They are a description of Rebecca Fox and her passion for excellence for the entire Katy community, its students and the district's faculty and staff. Her record as a trustee and as a parent has always been a record of continual improvement, equal opportunity and a sharp focus on providing exceptional educational opportunities for all students. She listens and she leads with full transparency. Her record of voting as a member of the board of trustees is aligned with these non-negotiable priorities. I trust her judgment, her knowledge, and her experience and I support her candidacy in this important school board election."

A motivational speaker for KATYISD VIPS used the word "VALUED" as most important in working with people. Making everyone feel VALUED is one of Rebecca's greatest strengths. She is and has been making a tremendous difference in the lives of countless students and educators through her committed service in our schools and community. Rebecca is "defined by generosity" of her time, experience, and service to others. Because of her willingness to give of herself generously, KISD's youth are being prepared for lives of significance and purpose. PLEASE VOTE REBECCA FOX FOR KATYISD BOARD.
