Will Conley joined the seven-member Wimberley ISD Board of Trustees in place 4 and Joe Malone continued his six years of service in his present role as president on Nov. 18.
Conley’s seat was previously held by Tina Pennington, who did not seek re-election.
“I am excited to begin the important work of supporting the best teachers and students in the state by working closely with a very dedicated team of board members,” Conley said.
“This board has opportunities to build on the innovation that enhances student success, while also embracing new ideas and strategies that are the hallmark of a WISD education,” he added.
Conley and his wife, Erin, have three children who attend WISD. He is a business owner and former county commissioner and has lived in Wimberley for 12 years.
Malone and his wife, Trish, are parents of three WISD students and have lived in Wimberley for 14 years. He is a partner with Stevens and Malone, PLLC, which supports the Wimberley office of Independence Title Company.
“It is an honor to receive the confidence of the community as the WISD Board of Trustees continues its important leadership role in boosting education by listening to our educators, community and families,” Malone said.
Among the tasks the two trustees face is overseeing a $45.5 million-dollar bond package, including construction of the new Blue Hole Primary School and renovations to Danforth Junior High, among other projects.
