Welcome the new and recognize the past
In case you missed the campaign signs, direct mail, and social media posts - the City of McKinney, McKinney ISD, and the Collin College Board of Trustees held their elections in May and subsequent runoff elections in June for several seats.
The Chamber would like to welcome the newly elected officials and show our appreciation to those who are rolling off of their positions in those respective organizations. We'll be hosting a Hail & Farewell June 27th from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn & Suites. For more information and to register for this event click here.

Two seats were up for grabs on the McKinney ISD Board of Directors. Incumbent Curtis Rippee won re-election to his seat and former school board member Bobby Amick, who chose not to run again, left a spot open for a new face to the school board. Kenneth Ussery won that seat and will begin his service to the community. We look forward to working with these school board members and the leadership at MISD as they lead the district and make decisions that impact the education for our children and future workforce.
