Following the resignation of Williamson County Schools board member Brad Fiscus in late September, the board has welcomed Josh Brown as its newest representative for District 4.

Brown was appointed to the board by the Williamson County Commission during its Oct. 11 meeting out of a pool of about a dozen candidates, according to county documents. He attended his first meeting with the school board Oct. 18. Brown received 16 votes of support from the commission.

According to Brown’s application to the county commission, he is a lifelong resident of Williamson County and a graduate of Williamson County Schools, with three children attending schools in the district. He has been employed by Pfizer Inc. since 2009.

“It’s an honor to be nominated. I’ve got three kids in the public school system, and I myself am a product of the Williamson County Schools system, graduating Page High School in 1991,” Brown said during the meeting. “I’ve been here all my life. ... I feel like I’ve invested my life in the community and I care deeply about what happens to our school system.”

Brown was nominated by District 4 commissioners Gregg Lawrence and Chad Story.


Story said the search took place over the course of the last few months.

Brown’s term will expire in the next county general election, to be held on Aug. 4. Brown will be eligible to run for another term at that time.
