School Board Update

The Board would like to thank all of the individuals who interviewed for the open board position today. All of the candidates were highly impressive and any one of them would be an excellent representative of this community. 

After meeting with eight outstanding finalists earlier today, it was the unanimous decision of its trustees to invite Travis Smith to join the Plainfield School Board. 

Travis Smith is a graduate of Indiana University, where he is currently completing his doctorate in Education. He and his wife have a student at Van Buren Elementary, along with two younger children.  Travis, a Plainfield resident and self-employed qualitative researcher focusing on the intersection of sports and education, is a Hendricks County native and is currently enrolled in our 2022-2023 Allies for Education class. 

Travis’ leadership skills, combined with his commitment to education and desire for involvement, will provide an excellent addition to the board.

Travis will be sworn into office in September.
