Today, Melissa Collier resigned from her position on the Lubbock ISD board of Trustees.

Collier was elected to an at-large position on the board in 2010, and she was selected as president by her peers in 2016. Collier’s current term was set to expire in May 2020. Collier is the co-owner of Collier Construction and mother of two Lubbock ISD students. She said in a letter that said the resignation comes at a time when demands on her time as the co-owner of a growing business and a very involved parent make it more difficult to serve in a third role as an elected official.

The Board of Trustees will appoint a successor to fill the vacancy until May 2018, when voters will select someone to fill the unexpired term. Interested applicants should direct a letter of interest and resume to the attention of Laura Vinson, Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees Vice President, 1628 19th Street, Lubbock, TX 79401, or deliver to the Superintendent’s Office at Lubbock ISD. Letters of interest and resumes must be received by 5 p.m. on June 8 to be considered.
