Leading with Experience, Delivering Results!


Collin College has the lowest tuition of any college in the state of Texas!  The District has the 2nd lowest tax rate of all colleges in Texas.  I have worked with Collin College and their nursing program which is one of the top programs for nursing in the nation!

I want to deliver the residents of Collin County bachelor’s degrees in more areas, so that our kids do not have to move away or pile up large student loans to get a top tier education.  Our cybersecurity and nursing programs are already top tier.  I want to bring this level of excellence to other fields of study while keeping the tuition the lowest and our tax rate the lowest!

I want to expand the partnerships with local schools providing more opportunities for vocational training and dual credits

We have been the fastest growing economic area in the nation for nearly two decades and we need to provide the education to keep the Texas Miracle going!
