    District 6-Southwest Dallas

    Ethics Agreement

    Joyce Foreman was elected to the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees, representing District 6, in June of 2014.

    District 6 covers southwest Dallas. As a business owner and community leader, Foreman will use her experience in education and the community to shape Dallas ISD in District 6 and throughout the district, where her efforts will directly impact students, teachers and staff.

    Foreman brings experience from a variety of education-related affiliations to the board. Most notably, she has served on the Dallas ISD Bond Advisory Committee since 2002. Passionate about preparing our students to be the best and brightest, Foreman has held other leadership positions in the district as a member of the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee and the Commission on Educational Excellence.

    Providing decades of civic involvement to Dallas citizens Foreman has previously served on the Greater Dallas Chamber Executive Committee, as Vice Chair of Dallas Area Rapid Transit Board, Chase Bank of Texas Board and El Centro College Office Career Advisory Committee.

    In 1981, after leading a successful career as a corporate buyer, Foreman decided to start and own a local company. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to form Foreman Office Products, a business venture that lasted 30 years until her retirement in 2011. She holds a bachelor's degree in management from Paul Quinn College, an associate degree in liberal arts from El Centro College, and a Doctorate of Divinity from Grace International Seminary.
