Director Lewis said “I’m raising a son here. He goes to Warren Middle School. We’ve been here since he was born. I grew up on the east coast. I worked at Parkland for ten plus year’s, I was the Budget Director there. I worked for the Dallas County Budget Officer so I was into the politics of Dallas County.”
In closing she said “I’m now a stay-at-home mom and I do volunteer work with the Genesis Center and the Sharing the Love Foundation and now I’m very excited about serving on this board.”
