    District 5-Oak Lawn, West Dallas, Wilmer, Hutchins and portions of East Oak Cliff

    Maxie Johnson was elected to the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees to represent District 5 in May 2019. District 5 is a large and diverse district that spans West Dallas, Oak Lawn, Uptown, and a large portion of South Oak Cliff.  Trustee Johnson has been an active community member throughout the district for decades.

    He serves as pastor at New Morning Star Baptist Church in West Dallas. Johnson is a proud graduate of Dallas ISD’s A. Maceo Smith High School and the parent of a son and daughter who graduated from South Oak Cliff High School. Johnson has devoted countless hours to the South Oak Cliff High School PTA and alumni association, including standing with his son, David, to successfully advocate for $52 million in improvements for the school.

    Trustee Johnson is deeply invested in the quality of our schools and the success of all of our students. He has worked in the community for more than 15 years as a community liaison, community organizer, and football and baseball coach. He has worked to empower kids, his community, and their families to work toward common goals.
