To the Editor,

The ideal school board is one where their individual agendas are non-existent. I am confident that when Judd McCutchen is elected as a WISD Trustee he will bring the attribute of respecting divergent opinions to the board.

Judd has a servant’s heart. At his church he is a Life Group leader, works with a Guatemalan mission, serves on the Finance Committee and is on the Family Ministry planning committee. He is serving his second term on the WISD Education Foundation, one of which as the organization’s president. He was an active member of the City of Waxahachie leadership group. And on a personal note, he was one of the original founders of a scholarship program in memory of my late husband Jimmy in 2009. They are still giving this scholarship annually to WHS graduates.

His goodwill and commitment to pay-it-forward is commendable, however, the added benefit for all of us is that Judd is exposed to a wide range of opinions giving him the unique ability to understand how WISD decisions affect a broader base of people. That’s why I think Judd McCutchen would make an ideal school board member.
