Lindsey Harrison

During today’s Tyler ISD Board Workshop, Trustees appointed Lindsey Harrison to fill the Single Member District 6 vacancy. Harrison is a Tyler ISD alumna and has two children who attend Andy Woods Elementary School.

“I am honored and humbled to be able to serve in this capacity with our wonderful Tyler ISD board members,” Harrison said. “I can’t wait to get started and strive to make our District one of the best.”

An active volunteer in the Tyler community, Harrison is the immediate past president of the Junior League of Tyler. She is also a member of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Smith County Board of Directors. Harrison received the W.C. Windsor Award for outstanding community service in 2018 from the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce.

Tyler ISD Board President Wade Washmon says trustees are excited to begin working with Harrison. “As a Board, we are excited to work alongside Lindsey,” Washmon said. “She is a level-headed, energetic, service-minded, third-generation Tyler ISD alumni who enthusiastically supports Tyler ISD every chance she gets. We have no doubt she will be a great board member who represents District 6 well. More importantly, she will help this Board in our pursuit of successful student outcomes.”

On May 13, Rev. Fritz Hager Jr. resigned from the Single Member District 6 post effective June 10, 2021. Harrison fills the vacancy for the remainder of the term that ends in May 2022. At that time, voters will elect a candidate to serve the next three-year term.
