Resolution honoring retiring SBOE member Sue Melton-Malone


WHEREAS Sue Melton-Malone passionately served Texas public education for almost half a century as both an educator and as a member of the State Board of Education; and

WHEREAS she taught school in the Ross and West school districts for 36 years and is now completing a decade of service on this board; and 

WHEREAS her election as state president of the Association of Texas Professional Educators for the 2007-2008 school year shows that Sue Melton-Malone was a recognized leader in her profession; and

WHEREAS she used her skills as a church choir director to lead the board and audience in many robust renditions of "Happy Birthday" to celebrate fellow board members and staff; and

WHEREAS as chair of the Committee on Instruction for the past eight years, she helped members of the committee sing from the same page as they crafted policies; and

WHEREAS she frequently used her teacher voice to present dozens of long and complex motions amending the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills; now, therefore be it

RESOLVED, that the State Board of Education wishes Sue Melton-Malone many years of fun adventures; and be it further

RESOLVED, that this resolution be presented to Sue Melton-Malone and that a copy be included in the permanent records of the State Board of Education.
