A quick liaison update… I have transitioned into a new role within Frisco ISD. My new role will keep me from attending all of our Friday meetings and therefore unable to continue serving as your LFNTX liaison. The talented Mindy Blackman has agreed to step in and serve. Mindy will be posting soon regarding our first meeting of the year. If you would like to join Mindy in the liaison work please reach out to her at

It’s been my honor to serve you and I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones this year! This is going to be our best year yet! -Ashley
