Newly appointed board member Andrea Duhon was sworn into office Dec. 18 to represent Position 4, Precinct 3 within the Harris County Department of Education Board of Trustees.

A self-professed public education advocate, Duhon wants to bolster Harris County student opportunities in early childhood education, adult education workforce certification and second-language acquisition.

“I have been in the fight for public education programs for several years now through galvanizing public support and testifying in the 86th (Texas) Legislature in support of HCDE,” she said. “I will continue to stand up for the good of our community through public education programs.”

The Katy resident holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from McNeese State University. She is a territory manager and marketing strategist for Plant Sight 3D.

Her affiliations include community leader for Combined Arms, formerly Lone Star Veterans Association, a nonprofit helping veterans transition to civilian life. Her husband Hank is active-duty Navy.

As a mother to second-grade student Jaci, Duhon talks about education reaching outside the school.

“Education does not end in the classroom,” she said. “It extends to the playground, the sports field, the neighborhood and home. When we support our students from a community level, we grow as a society.”
