January is School Board Recognition Month

January is School Board Recognition Month, and Brenham ISD joins the Texas Association of School Boards and other districts across the state to honor the countless contributions of these locally elected advocates for Texas schoolchildren and public schools. School board members tackle a difficult job and shoulder enormous responsibilities. These men and women are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for our public schools. They provide vision and leadership in their roles as advocates, and they will continue to stand up for public education and guard against anything that takes away from our children or undermines our public schools.


Board members serving Brenham ISD are:

  • Natalie Lange, President
  • Melvin Ehlert, Vice President
  • Susan Jenkins, Secretary
  • Dr. Michael Altman, Trustee
  • Sgt. Kelvin Raven, Trustee
  • Mark Schneider, Trustee
  • Tommie Sullivan, Trustee


Our district benefits from the tireless work and countless hours contributed by these local citizens who work without pay. Serving as a crucial link between the community and classroom, our board is responsible for an annual budget of over $40 million, over 5,000 students, more than 700 employees, and 8 campuses. It’s more important than ever before that the public support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. Please take a moment and tell school board members ‘thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community.’ Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated!
