Julie Pickren has a longstanding education leadership experience while serving in many capacities including serving as a board member of two Christian private schools, an Alvin ISD Trustee from 2015-2021, and an education policy advisor for many states. During her tenure as Alvin ISD Trustee, Mrs. Pickren saw many successes and awards. Alvin ISD is a fast growing school district that built 9 new schools while honoring the state compressed tax rate, thus, saving the taxpayers millions of dollars. She has received many awards for ﬁscal responsibility and student success and an Honor Board Award. Mrs. Pickren is proud of her record as being a huge proponent for teachers.

Julie believes that together we can ensure our children’s education prepares them to achieve the American Dream with Texas Values.
