Rich Sena, Darrel Lux, Donna Sharp
Rich Sena, newly re-elected to his seat on the Boerne ISD Board of Trustees, will serve as president of that body for the 2017-18 academic year.
As part of its annual reorganization, the Board at its May 15 regular meeting named Sena president for the upcoming one-year term. Carlin Friar was named vice president and Joe Tidwell was named secretary.
The reorganization vote was preceded by the oath of office, administered by Kendall County Judge Darrel Lux to newly re-elected members Sena and Donna Sharp. Sena, the incumbent, was re-elected to his seat in the May 6 election; Sharp was unopposed. Both will serve terms that end in 2020.
