James Avery, New GISD Board Member Flint, Mich – The Genesee Intermediate School District Board of Education is pleased to announce James Avery as its newest board member. The board selected Avery during a public meeting on Monday, May 6, 2019, after holding public interviews with board member candidates. The vacated seat became available recently when Cindy Gansen relocated out of state after serving 11 years on the board. Avery will fulfill the remainder of Gansen’s term, until June 30, 2019.

Avery has worked in education as a teacher, administrator, and board member, and currently is the Director of Education and Training at the Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce. He is in his seventh year as a member of the Grand Blanc Community Schools Board of Education, where he has also earned recognition from the Michigan Association of School Boards as a Master School Board Member.

Avery said he loves to see people win, especially our youth, and feels privileged to work with Genesee County students and adults to help them discover, develop, and retain opportunities.

“As a GISD Board of Education member, I welcome the opportunity to effectively serve all Genesee County school districts to the best of my ability,” said Avery. “It is a privilege and great honor to be a member of the GISD Board of Education!”
