Incumbent Cathy M. Arellano and newly-elected Rob Ellis took oaths of office for the Klein ISD board of trustees during the Dec. 2 board meeting.

As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, Ellis won in the race for Position 7—which had five candidates—according to November election results. Ellis replaced Rick Mann, who served as the KISD's longest-tenured trustee with 28 years of service, and did not seek re-election.

“I look forward to serving with you all [board members]”, Ellis said during the meeting. “One of the things that has struck me the most in the short time I’ve been [on the board] is the impressive team, the staff, Dr. McGown [and] her cabinet. The educators here in Klein put so much into their jobs and it’s just an honor to serve with you as volunteers for us on the board.”

Arrellano has served on the board for almost three years and ran unopposed for Position 6 this year, as previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper.

“I also want to thank everyone for allowing me to be here,” Arellano said during the meeting.

In addition to the swearing in of recently-elected board members, an election of board officers was also held during the Dec. 2 board meeting. Former secretary Doug James was elected to serve as board president, while former president Georgan Reitmeier was elected to serve as board vice president and Trustee Chris Todd was elected to serve as board secretary.
