CYPRESS — The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) has reelected CFISD Board of Trustees Vice President Bob Covey to a three-year term to its board of directors, representing Region 4, Position F.


Covey has served the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Board for 13 years, holding positions of president, vice president and secretary. A Leadership TASB graduate and Master Trustee, he is a director of the Gulf Coast Area Association of School Boards, has presented at the National School Boards Association (NSBA) Annual Conference and has attended the NSBA Federal Relations Network Conference. He also has presented at the TASA/TASB Convention and TASB Winter Governance and Legal Seminar.

Active at the local level, Covey is a member of the Cy-Fair Houston Chamber of Commerce and participates in numerous CFISD activities and functions, including school athletic and chorale booster clubs, the Bus Buddies program and Read Across America initiatives. Each semester for the past 12 years, he has lectured about school board governance to junior education majors at the Texas State University College of Education. Covey is founder and president of Go Public Gulf Coast and is active in Impact with the Harris County Department of Education.

Covey earned his bachelor’s degree at Texas State University and has held numerous leadership positions with the university’s alumni association.

He retired from American Alloy Steel, Inc., after serving 35 years with the company. His retirement was short-lived however, as the company asked him to reactivate his role as vice-president of sales and he resumed his position seven years ago.

TASB is a nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local public school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.3 million students.
