After more than nine years of serving on the Alvin ISD board of trustees, Vivian Scheibel resigned from her position.

What’s happening?

AISD’s board accepted Scheibel’s resignation at its Aug. 8 meeting after Scheibel said her family is relocating outside the district for an opportunity “our family just couldn’t pass up.” While she will remain close, she will not be in the district’s boundaries.

To sit on an independent school board, a trustee must live in the district they represent, according to the Texas Election Code.

The board presented Scheibel at the meeting with a plaque and a bouquet of flowers for her years of service.

Career History

Scheibel was elected to the board in 2014 and is a technical sales professional for a software company, according to her trustee bio on the district’s website. In addition to her work, Scheibel enjoys volunteering.

She and her husband, Randy Scheibel, have two children and a grandchild, and have lived in the district since 2004. Her youngest son graduated in 2021 from Shadow Creek High School, according to her bio.

What they’re saying

Scheibel in her remarks at the meeting said she regretted leaving and had planned to finish out her term. She said she will miss everyone and thanked everyone in the district as well as the other trustees.

“It’s been a privilege to serve the last nine years,” Scheibel said at the meeting. “I’m profoundly grateful to our teachers, our administrators, our staff. All the people that work so tremendously hard for our kids each and every day.”

Board President Earl Humbird thanked Scheibel for her dedication to the board.

“You will be very ... severely missed,” Humbird said.

Looking ahead

Trustees in their closed session discussed the new board vacancy, according to their agenda. Executive Director of Communications Renae Rives said in an email Aug. 9 the replacement and pending process are still being discussed.

Alvin ISD will meet again Sept. 12, according to the district’s website.
