Jon Welch - Member


District 5

Board Member Since 2019

Current Term Expires in 2023

Jon Welch was born in Houston, grew up in Sugar Land and attended Fort Bend ISD schools. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Communications in college. He works in marketing. He has lived in Lamar CISD with his family since 2008. 

Jon credits his parents & several of his teachers with his passion for learning, his intellectual curiosity, and his interest in societal & cultural changes facing the nation today. On a more personal note, he enjoys books about history and biographies of memorable individuals. He also follows the Houston Astros & Houston Texans.

"I'm from a family with multiple educators in it. The success of our schools is directly tied to the teachers we recruit and retain. They are the ones who inspire and help to motivate students in the joys of understanding and application. In addition, I am concerned about the burden shouldered by the taxpayers. There needs to be a healthy balance regarding the money LCISD collects via property taxes with the wants/needs of the schools."
