Adam Meierhofer, Richardson ISD school board member, has decided not to run for re-election this May. Meierhofer will complete one term of three years.
“I have been honored to serve on the RISD Board of Trustees since 2012,” said Meierhofer in a statement on social media, “and been rewarded with the experience of representing our community and working alongside RISD staff for the benefit of all students.”
“After much prayerful consideration, my family and I have decided that, at the end of my term in May, I will not seek re-election in order to spend more time with my young family. Until that time, I will remain highly focused on the important work underway in RISD.”
Meierhofer is also active in his church and his children’s elementary school and is well known as the visionary behind the Lake Highlands Exchange Club’s Oktoberfest. The owner of Amberley Place, an assisted living facility in Dallas, he was recently elected VP of the school board by his fellow trustees.
“I am proud of RISD’s ongoing success in meeting the challenges faced by public education and the demands of our growing, diverse school district. I have the utmost confidence in the district leadership team and the Board of Trustees to continue to balance available resources to cultivate an environment in which all students can learn, grow and succeed. I plan to remain active in the district and my neighborhood schools as we work to prepare students to meet the demands of our highly competitive global economy. “
“I thank the RISD community for the opportunity to serve.”
