June Bates is serving her third term as a Trustee. She was a very involved CISD grandparent, serving as Golden Pride Band Boosters President when her two grandsons were in high school. As a local business owner, Mrs. Bates is an active member of the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce, as past Chairman of the Board and sponsor of the Chamber Golf Tournament and the annual Shakespeare in the Park event. She is a proud graduate of Fort Worth’s Poly High School.
Mrs. Bates sought election to the Board of Trustees “to help make a difference in students’ lives, to get better pay and benefits for teachers and to help better prepare our community for the coming growth.”
