Henry Dibrell Announces Run for Re-election to Katy ISD Board of Trustees
On January 18, 2017 Henry Dibrell announced his candidacy for the Katy Independent School Board.
“First and foremost, I am the proud parent of four Katy ISD students who my wife and I have had the privilege to raise in a thriving community and great schools,” said Dibrell. “It’s been such an honor to serve my community and neighbors over the past six years, and I hope to continue to work on behalf of my fellow taxpayers who expect high quality schools and cost efficiencies in managing them.”
Since first having been elected to the Board in 2011, Dibrell has worked for student success in all areas— striving for rigorous academics and competitive athletic and fine arts programs. Over the past six years Katy ISD students have consistently outperformed their peers in the SAT and ACT, while the district’s schools have been recognized as among the best in the region by Niche, an education rating organization. Dibrell has also been a staunch steward of the taxpayer dollar. As a fiscal conservative he played a key role in lowering the school tax rate by one cent last year. During his tenure, the district has earned “Superior Achievement” by the School Financial Integrity System of Texas (FIRST) and the Texas Comptroller of Public Account’s Leadership Circle Award for government financial transparency.
In his next term Dibrell says he will continue to demand a high level of excellence and access to unparalleled educational opportunities for Katy ISD students, as well as champion budgetary efficiencies that lead to another eventual cut in school taxes.
Dibrell has been a resident of Katy for over a decade, He is a licensed minister and holds a B.S. in marketing from Northwestern State University. Dibrell was also recently elected to the Board of Directors for the Texas Association of School Boards. More than 30 Katy community leaders have endorsed Dibrell to date.
