New Crosby ISD board members take oath of office; new board officers elected
J.R. Humphries and Kasey Kealynn Lewis were sworn into their newly elected positions at the start of Thursday night’s Crosby ISD special meeting.
Humphries ran uncontested for Position 3 and took over former Position 3 Board Member John Lindsey’s position.
“I’m just looking forward to the challenge. I know we’ve got a long road ahead of us but I don’t think there’s anything that we can’t recover from in this town. (Crosby) has proven before that it can do it, so it’s just going to be some work,” Humphries said.
Lewis won the Position 2 spot with 542 votes. Lewis took over former Position 2 Board Member Cathi Hughes’s role on the board.
“I’m really excited. I know we have a lot of work to do so I’m really excited to get over there to see what I can do to help better things and make things right,” Lewis said.
At-Large Position 6 Board Member John Swinney and Position 1 Board Member Tanya Eagleton ran for re-election uncontested.
All board members were sworn in by Harris County Justice of the Peace for Precinct 3 Joe Stephens.
After all members were sworn in, board members voted Swinney to be the new Crosby ISD Board President, Randy Condra as vice president, Carla Windfont as secretary and Eagleton as assistant secretary.
“I would like to thank my board members for support they give me to elect me represent them. I’m very excited about that, very happy and I look forward to working with (Superintendent) Dr. (Scott) Davis as president of the school board,” Swinney said. “We have a lot of issues facing the district but we have a lot of good things going on the district, so I’m looking forward to tackling those and being a part of all that in the future.”
Eagleton was not present for the oath of office but will take his oath at a later date.
