It is an exciting opportunity to advocate for public education on the state and national levels. Kelly has served on the Magnolia ISD School Board, Position 1, for the past five years. Along with six other trustees, she ensures the vision and goals of the school district are met with a focus to adopt a policy that governs 13,600 students and 1,200 teachers and staff covering 16 campuses.
Out of 7,200 school board trustees statewide, Kelly in 2018 participated in the Leadership of Texas Association of School Boards. She and 32 other trustees led the conversation in Washington D.C.
Their advocacy to Congress for public policies ensures Texas students have access to an excellent education wherever they live. In 2019, Kelly graduated from the Texas Association of School Boards Leadership Program, earning the designation of Master Trustee.
Before her School Board Service, Kelly was a member of the 2014 Magnolia ISD Parent Leadership Committee, the 2015 Magnolia Facility Planning Committee, and the ALPHA Academy Campus Improvement Committee.
