Wendell Dempsey
  • Wendell Dempsey is serving his fourth term on the CISD Board of Trustees. A product of the Fort Worth public school system, he has seen three generations of family go through Cleburne schools. As a CISD Trustee, he had the opportunity to present his great-grandson with his Cleburne High School diploma.


    Mr. Dempsey has owned the only auto machine shop in town for 51 years. He felt his experience and knowledge in business and finance were contributing qualities he could bring to the Board in his decision to run for the Board in 2008.


    “The fact that we, as board members, come from all walks of life and careers, helps us come together to solve problems. We share a trust and respect for each other.”
