Community Advocate, Stephanie Brown, Enters FBISD School Board Race
A Trustee Hopeful with a Volunteer’s Heart
and an Advocate’s Voice
After decades of time and dedication given to students in the Thurgood Marshall High School feeder pattern, Stephanie Brown is now hoping to focus her passion on all Fort Bend ISD students as she seeks election to the FBISD Board of Trustees Position 6. Stephanie has an extensive background in advocacy and volunteerism. Her most recent achievement is founding and leading the Marshall Advocacy Focus Group (MAFG), a committed group of parents, students and community members collaborating with District administration to bring tangible improvements to the Marshall feeder pattern, whose concerns have been unaddressed for a long time. Stephanie is eager to put her servant’s heart and her commitment to equity in education to work as a representative of all FBISD stakeholders on the FBISD School Board.
A VOLUNTEER – AND A VOICE:
Stephanie is truly committed to being a voice for the many students, parents and teachers who have been silenced due to bureaucracy or lack of time.
“In my quest to make a difference in the lives of students in my community, I have realized that my dedication and passion can positively impact ALL students and families in FBISD,” Stephanie explained. “I have been volunteering in FBISD for over 20 years and continue to volunteer and serve even after my children have graduated. As a board member, I will continue to speak on behalf of those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
As an example of how Stephanie has fought for the voiceless, as founder of the Marshall Advocacy Focus Group, Stephanie is very proud of advocating for and bringing to fruition:
- Much needed Title 1 funding for Marshall High School;
- Early Literacy;
- New programming for the feeder pattern – including piano tech and technical theatre at the High School level and Orchestra at the elementary level;
- EOC exam assistance;
- Areas of interest surveys at the Middle School level, to help ensure High School meets local student needs;
- The addition of American Sign Language as a foreign language option;
- Agriculture born on campus;
- Advocate for block scheduling for Marshall students in 2019;
- And many more.
But the MAFG is just the most recent in a long history of volunteerism for Stephanie. She has served, and continues to serve, as PTO President from 2002 and has been actively involved in a variety of athletic booster club organizations. She was named VIPS of the Year for her local middle and high school campuses. Stephanie has also served on a variety of FBISD committees including the SHAC (Student Health Advisory Committee) and boundary advisory committees. A proud graduate of the FBISD Leadership Academy, Stephanie has taken time to really understand the duties and limitations of the School Board.
VOTE STEPHANIE BROWN FOR FBISD:
Stephanie’s advocacy and her heart for children, coupled with her vast experience with and knowledge of FBISD, make her very well-suited to represent all stakeholders as a School Board Trustee.
Fort Bend Independent School District will conduct an Election for Trustees Position 2 and Position 6 on May 1, 2021. All FBISD residents vote for every position, regardless of where they live in the area.
