The Aerospace community impacts everyone in this area, including FISD. Board member Mike Shaw works for GeoControl Systems as a Payload Integration Manager for the International Space Station.
Shaw is a resident of Friendswood and a graduate of Friendswood High School. Upon graduation from Texas Tech with a BS in Engineering, he returned to Friendswood to begin a career in the Aerospace field.
Elected for his first term in 1998, Shaw has continued to serve for 11 years in Position 1 and has held a variety of offices.
Mike and his wife Kimberly have three children: Courtney, Shelby and Kailyn who all attended FISD. He has served as a Youth basketball coach, a part of the Clear Creek Elementary Mentoring Program, and the Board liaison on the Friendswood ISD Education Foundation.
Why Shaw joined the Board:
I believe that I bring a perspective of someone who was raised in the community, and understood its traditions and citizens’ expectations. I want to move the district forward with common sense approaches and improvements that the students and taxpayers would benefit from.
What does he hope to accomplish:
I hope to continue the traditional level of excellence that our community has come to expect and to continue to push for the highest academic results. I focus on maximizing student participation in extra curricular activities, believing that it is a key to the long term success of our students and our district. I also believe that the level of parent participation in the educational process, a highly motivated staff, and great kids are the keys to FISD’s success.
