Eagleton resigns; Crosby School Board reorganizes

Board President Tanya Eagleton moving; resigns

CROSBY – Last month the Crosby ISD Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of Board President Ms. Tanya Eagleton. During a Special Called Meeting, Ms. Eagleton announced she is moving out of state for a new career opportunity.

In an emotional message, Ms. Eagleton said, “It’s been a great journey. We’ve had good times, and we’ve had bad times. Through it all, we stuck together. I feel the District is in such a great place right now. We have a wonderful Superintendent. We have an amazing Board. I feel like I have accomplished my mission as a Board member for Crosby ISD. … I will forever be a Cougar. This is my home. This is my love. This is now. But now it’s time for me to move on.”

After Ms. Eagleton’s message, Superintendent Paula Patterson and fellow Trustees thanked Ms. Eagleton for her 13 years of service to the students and staff of Crosby ISD.

Superintendent Patterson later added: “Ms. Eagleton has been a champion for the children of our Crosby / Barrett Station communities for more than a decade. Her tenure on the board included challenges and triumphs. Her time as Board President involved making major decisions while navigating the pandemic and the unprecedented learning challenges it presented. Despite some setbacks, Ms. Eagleton’s passion to serve never wavered, and she always put the students and staff of Crosby ISD first. We know this personal decision was difficult, and we thank Ms. Eagleton for her commitment to Crosby ISD. We wish her well in this next chapter.”
