Voters elected two new members to the Katy ISD school board May 10, Ashley Vann and Courtney Doyle, to fill positions 3 and 4 respectively, while position 5 incumbent Henry Dibrell was re-elected for another term.
Board newcomer Vann unseated the incumbent, Bill Proctor, by better than 2 votes to 1. Vann tallied a total of 2,620 votes to Proctor’s 1,285.
"I am pleased that the voters in this year's Katy ISD Board of Trustees election overwhelming chose for me to serve in Position 3," said Vann, 42, who works as a homemaker and volunteer. "It is my plan to work hard, be present, ask the relevant questions and always vote on district matters in a way that best serves the students, staff and taxpayers of Katy ISD. I look forward to being a part of great things in Katy ISD."
She said in interviews leading up to the election that properly managing the growth of the district and ensuring the safety of students are her top two priorities.
