Board Member Profile - Beth Light What would be the perfect afternoon for you? Sitting on a balcony with an amazing mountain view while I read a book and enjoy friends. Who was your role model as a kid? Why? My most important role models were my mother, my aunt and my dad. Mother andher sister were very strong and independent woman who succeeded in areas of business that did not involve women at that time. Dad was kind, honest, ethical and tried to take care of anyone who needed help. Both my parents were strict and loving, which provided me with an amazing foundation. When faced with particular situations today, I find myself asking how they would have handled it. What schools did you attend? Littlefield, Texas is a farming community where I grew up. I attended grades 1-11 there and completed my senior year at Lubbock Christian High School. After graduating from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Business Administration, I completed graduate work there as well asSt. Mary’s in San Antonio. Missing one minor cumulative exam prevented me from receiving a master’s degree. What is one quote that has become your life’s motto? “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” - Mother Teresa 817-453-2229 1600 Ousley Rd Mansfield, TX 76063 Give us a brief bio of your career. After graduating from Texas Tech University, I worked as a systems analyst. My husband Dennis and I made several moves in years to come all over Texas. The next stop was Maysville, Kentucky, where I became a stay-at-home mom. Volunteering became my interest. As a member of a school board of directors and a women’s club, enough money was raised to create a downtown park. My husband later got a job in Arlington, Texas. He directed metogo check out Mansfield because it was a nice town. We purchased a house, our son attended Boren Elementary, I asked how I could volunteer there, and the rest has been history since 1999. I later started working with K-12 school districts across the country implementing computer software. Currently, I work with professors at two and four-year colleges. What makes you so passionate about Mansfield ISD? Watching the community, staff and students come together todo what is right for kids. Even aswe have become a large district, we have maintained the “small town” feel.
