Velloti Wendy Vellotti was elected to the SISD Board of Trustees on November 3, 2020. She graduated from SOSU with a bachelor's degree focused on education and served ten years as a preschool teacher and director of the School for Little People.

Due to her commitment to children's growth and development within SISD, she has served for many years in different capacities throughout SISD. Her volunteer list includes Dillingham PTA President, Piner PTA Vice-President, SHS PTA Secretary, SHS Band Booster President, SHAC committee member, Sherman Education Foundation member, and substitute teacher at many SISD schools.

 Her family enjoys adventures in Scouting, working at the Bob Skaggs Memorial Food Drive, and gardening on her farm, but their passion is watching SHS Band in the half-time show.

Rob Wilson Transitions off Sherman ISD Board of Trustees

Sherman ISD thanks Rob Wilson for faithfully serving the community for six and half years as a Sherman ISD School Board Trustee. While on the board, Mr. Wilson provided significant financial and technological expertise that helped SISD achieve Superior financial ratings, maintain conservative and strategic financial management practices. He was part of the successful execution of the 2017 bond sale and construction of the new Sherman High School that will change SISD children’s education trajectory for generations to come. On behalf of the 7,500 school children, 1,100 staff members, and our board of trustees, we thank Mr. Wilson for his dedicated service to the families in Sherman ISD.
