Mike McDaniel, owner of Preferred Self Storage in Highland Village, Texas, is running for Place 3 on the Lewisville Independent School District (LISD) Board of Trustees. He will race against incumbent Tommy Kim and Jeff Knapp, a certified public accountant, in the May 8 election.
A total of nine candidates are running for board seats. McDaniel, a Highland Village resident, served on the board from 1998 to 2004 and is a former administrator at Lewisville High School (LHS).
McDaniel is also an ordained deacon and serves on the Denton County Child Protective Services board of directors. For the last three years, he has served as president of the LHS Grand Ball Booster Club, which hosts an annual prom for special-needs children. Last year, McDaniel and his wife, Linda, were recipients of the Inside Self-Storage Humanitarian Service Award for their participation in this event since its inception in 1985. In addition, McDaniel has been awarded an Honorary Life Membership by the Texas Congress of Parents and Teachers.
McDaniel said he has been recently moved by several compelling issues to seek a position on the LISD Board. He has concerns about the search for a new superintendent that will take place this summer and the districts pan to purchase some new field houses.
