Barbara Burns and Sheryl English Meet and Greet

Meet the candidates!

Stop by Patchouli Joe's on Sunday, April 7 from 2-4pm to meet Barbara Burns and Sheryl English to talk ask questions and talk about life on the Denton ISD School Board!

Barbara Burns is dedicated educator and parent and prioritized family while teaching government and U.S. history. Inspired by her parents and a desire to contribute post-retirement, she became deeply involved in education by attending school board meetings in Denton for seven years before being elected to the board in 2012.

With nearly 12 years on the board, she has gained valuable insights through direct interactions with the Denton ISD community. Her board experience, district knowledge, and open communication have been pivotal in decision-making, leading to improvements such as a new system for playground equipment replacement in schools.

Sheryl English served as the Chair of the Board of Commissioners for the Denton Housing Authority, where she shared her expertise with the organization and focused on affordable housing for families. She was involved in the construction of a multi-unit property in Denton with a public/private partnership that provided 324 additional units for the residents of Denton. 

Ms. English has the distinction of being the first black woman to serve on the Denton Chamber of Commerce Board and the first black woman to serve as a Denton ISD School Trustee.
