Newcomer Dr. Charles Randklev and incumbent Ruthie Keyes were sworn in May 24 during the regular meeting of the Keller ISD board of trustees.

Randklev and Keyes won Places 6 and 7 on the board, respectively.

Randklev, who was joined by his family for his swearing in, explained previously in a candidate Q&A that his top priorities included improving communications among parents, teachers and staff; working with the board and administration to develop a COVID-19 recovery plan; and ensuring the Keller ISD continues to provide an exceptional education experience for all of its students.

In the May 1 election, he defeated Shalunda Corzine and Yohannes A. Mengsteab by earning 66.1% of the vote for the Place 6 seat.

Keyes was sworn in for her fourth term after defeating Jacqueline Reagan for Place 7 with 63.1% of the vote on May 1.


A retired teacher, Keyes cited the Keller ISD’s vision, mission and priorities as her top items of focus in a candidate Q&A.
