The Victoria ISD Board of Trustees, in a majority decision following the July 25 special called board meeting, is proud to announce the appointment of Bridgette Sutton Marshall as the new District Two Trustee.

The appointment comes following the resignation of Dr. Estella De Los Santos. The decision to accept Dr. De Los Santos' resignation and appointment of Ms. Marshall to fill the vacancy was made during the special called board meeting held on July 5, 2023.
