 Our future relies on the success of students today.  I believe we can give students the tools they need to become successful contributing members of society.  I have served as a trustee beginning in 2010, completed  Leadership TASB training in 2017, and been part of several successful bond programs.  I believe the school is responsible to partner with parents and the community to provide rigorous academic instruction, relevant career and technical programs to fit future student needs, and extra curricular programs to promote competition, teamwork, and hard work.   Trustees are responsible to oversee administrations role in balancing student and staff needs along with available financial resources.  My wife, Dr. Karen Cornett, and I have 4 children who are graduates or attending FISD schools – Mary, Otto, Summer and Henry.  My family is active with Holy Ghost Lutheran Church and I’ve led youth construction trips to Mexico with Mision de Candelia; coached youth baseball, soccer, and basketball;  and have volunteered at Primary to High School activities.  My education is from Texas public schools:  Canadian High School and degrees in Civil and Agricultural Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1996 and 1999.  I have a 26 year career in land development, civil construction, project management, and consulting engineering.  I serve public and private clients throughout the region through Cornett Engineering and understand the impacts of growth, development, infrastructure, and property values.

Raising our family in Gillespie County has been a great experience. It is the community my wife, Kristen, and I were born and raised in, and were supported by. Now we enjoy being a part of it as a family. Kristen and I have two young boys. I enjoy helping with 4-H and FFA youth auctions as a buyer, and serving on the board of an organization that works to keep kids safe.  I believe a great education is a powerful tool for them in that process. Students, parents, teachers, retired teachers, administrators, and tax payers all need their interests protected by a board that knows how to lead.  I take time to listen. I care. I find value in working together with local people and local government.
