To the Editor,

To Citizens of the Waxahachie Independent School District;

Dear fellow residents of Waxahachie. Whether we have children or grandchildren enrolled in school or not, the upcoming school board election is one of the most important elections we can be involved in. Education is a key factor in the success of our young citizens, who are soon to be our leaders. That is why we must be sure to have the best qualified, and most dedicated persons directing our administrators, teachers and staff as school board members.

Mickie Hill is that kind of person. She is a strong supporter of our schools in many ways. She worked to attain her college degree, majoring in education. She is a substitute teacher. She is a member of the WISD Education Foundation and the Executive Board. She served on the WISD Long Range Planning Committee in 2014. She is on the Global High School Steering Committee. She was Committee Chair for the Book Drive for Operation First Day of School. She participates and enjoys D.E.A.R. Day (Drop Everything and Read).

Mickie, and her husband, David, are strong members of our community, being members of the First Baptist Church, the Rotary Club, and are Founding Donors for the building of the Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Waxahachie.

We hope all of you will join us in voting for Mickie Hill in the upcoming school board election.

Sherry and Bobby Dyess,
