Longtime Tyler ISD board member Therelee Washington decided not to seek re-election to the school board.
Since no one else filed for the position, Mrs. Washington will represent District 3, once the board cancels the election and approves her as the representative.
She said she loves education, students and teachers and wants to see the district make great changes to its schools.
“I feel that I can bring some great ideas to the board because I have been an educator and I can work really well with people and I have a very positive attitude,” she said.
Washington, 77, is in his 19th year on the board and decided it was time to end his service, Mrs. Washington said by phone.
