The Boerne Area Democrats are thrilled to welcome Dr. Merrie Fox as our guest speaker on Thursday, May 9, at noon, at the Longhorn Cafe (upstairs).  Dr. Fox is a candidate for Texas State Senate District 25 (running against Donna Campbell).  


Dr. Fox is a veteran educator, having worked in public schools for 31 years as a teacher and campus principal. After retiring in June 2023, she now works as the Executive Director for Circle Arts Theatre in New Braunfels. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Southwest Texas State University in 1992, majoring in Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in biology; a Master’s degree in 2003 from Texas State University in Education Administration; and a Ph.D. from Northcentral University in 2018 with a focus on Educational Leadership. 

During her tenure as a public school principal, all three of her campuses were rated as ‘Recognized’ or ‘A’ schools under the Texas school accountability system. In 2009, Dr. Fox was selected by Raise Your Hand Texas, a non-partisan organization that advocates for public education, to attend a Summer Institute at the Principals’ Center at Harvard. In 2018, she was selected to serve as a Principal Advocacy Fellow for the 86th legislative session.

Dr. Fox has lived in the Texas Hill Country for more than forty years. She and her wife, Lisa, have raised two children who graduated from Comal ISD. She volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Family Promise, and Riverside Pride. She is an active member of her church choir and in her free time, she enjoys playing cards and laughing with family and friends, attending the theatre, listening to live music, and kayaking the beautiful hill country rivers.
