(Austin)—The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has reelected George Scott to a two-year term on the TASB Board of Directors, representing TASB Region 4, Position E.

Scott was elected to the Katy ISD Board of Trustees in May 2016. Scott served as publisher of The Katy Times newspaper from 1983–86 before becoming senior researcher and then president of the Tax Research Association of Houston and Harris County. He also served on the executive committee of the Harris County Appraisal District, where he performed both internal and external media functions, as well as special projects.

In addition, he has served on former education commissioner Mike Moses’ Accountability Advisory Committee and was appointed by the Harris County Commissioners Court to the board of managers of the Harris County Hospital District.

During his tenure in local media, Scott worked directly with hundreds of civic and service organizations and individuals to help publicize their positive work for the community and volunteered in various activities, including the Katy Chamber of Commerce and youth sports leagues.

TASB is a nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local public school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.3 million students.
