    "My desire as a board member is to ensure that our students have opportunities to maximize their personal education goals. A thriving community needs confident learners and serving youth today will make servant leaders tomorrow. "

    After retiring from a 22 year financial planning career, Priscilla relocated to Bastrop and has served as the Youth Director for Ascension Catholic Church since 2014. She also currently serves as a Network Weaver & Leadership Coach for the Central Texas Health and Wellbeing Network. Priscilla enjoys continuous volunteerism within Bastrop ISD including grant writing for youth initiatives, and directing families to community resources.

Alongside other community members, she co-created the Bastrop County Youth Summit, Youth Bridging Networks for Change, and Festival De La Cultura. 

    Priscilla’s daily fuel is family. She is happily married to Danny and they have two adult daughters, Hannah and Shelby. Their three grandkids, Luke, Bonnie Rose, and Lorelai are their pride and joy.
