The New Caney ISD Board of Trustees at a Nov. 15 meeting canvassed the results of the Nov. 2 election.

Two incumbents maintained their seats on the board, including Position 3 trustee Wendy Sharp, who defeated Oscar Ramirez Jr., and Position 5 trustee Chad Turner, who defeated Dennis Alters. Challenger Angela Tompkins defeated incumbent Ricky Warwick for the Position 4 seat.

At the meeting, trustees voted to reorganize board leadership, with Position 6 trustee Ty Trout taking over as board president following Turner’s three-year stint.

“It’s been a wonderful honor to serve our district over the last three years in this capacity," Turner said. "I’ll never forget the opportunity to keep our kids first and do what’s best for our community."

NCISD Superintendent Matt Calvert thanked Turner for his service as board president.


“I appreciate the role [Turner] played and everything he did to make our district a better place,” Calvert said.

Additionally, Position 2 trustee Creg Mixon will maintain his role as vice president, Position 1 trustee Elizabeth Harrell will serve as board secretary and Position 7 trustee Beth Prykryl will serve as assistant secretary.
