Keller Trustee Lara Lee Hogg announced at the July 18 school board meeting that she is stepping down from Place 5 because she is moving out of the district.

Hogg told the board that she is moving due to family changes, bringing her mother to live with them and needing more space.

“It has been a great privilege and a great honor for me to be able to serve my community,” Hogg said.

Hogg was first elected in 2007 for the last year in an unexpired term. She was then re-elected in 2008 and 2011. Hogg and husband Michael Hogg have three children, with the oldest in college. She has been working as a strategic planning and business development specialist for Texas Health Resources.

Board President Jim Stitt said trustees decided during executive session at the July 25 budget meeting to take letters of interest and optional resumes from community members who want to be considered for the vacancy. The deadline for letters is 5 p.m. Aug. 5. Submissions should go to Superintendent Randy Reid at the Education Center, 350 Keller Pkwy. Board members plan to interview top applicants and approve a replacement for Hogg in the weeks after the application deadline.

Stitt said he has already received inquiries from district residents interested in the vacancy.

Stitt praised Hogg for her years of service. “She has definitely been instrumental in helping our technology department grow and flourish,” he said. “She has always been a very caring individual about kids, a very strong advocate for students and teachers.”
