Board of Directors

School of Science and Technology School’s board of directors are all unpaid volunteers who come from varied backgrounds in academia, medicine, science, and mathematics and share a common passion for education. The Board also solicits input and insight from various individuals and business community members in the San Antonio area.

Board nominations can be made by anyone, including existing Board members, School of Science and Technology’s employees, parents, alumni, and the general public.
